Animal ConsciousnesswithKarlene Stange

Books Mentioned In This Interview

Karlene Stange, DVM, is author of The Spiritual Nature of Animals: A Country Vet Explores the Wisdom, Compassion, and Souls of Animals.

Here she suggests that humans and animals share many similar conscious experiences. Science is now correcting previous mistaken beliefs that animals do not experience pain, do not show emotions, and are not even conscious. She provides many stories illustrating the enormous capacities of different animals. She maintains that these beliefs developed in order to justify cruel behavior toward animals. She shares her belief that many animals willingly sacrifice themselves for each other and for humans.
