Animal deaths, Syrian suffering


IF BESIEGED Syrians, starved and slaughtered by President Bashar Assad for the past three years, were giraffes in a Danish zoo or even stray dogs wandering the streets of Sochi, their plight would have created more outrage and critical humanitarian relief efforts than that mobilized by the international community to date. Perhaps it’s time for animal rights groups to take the lead in confronting the mounting human carnage in plain view for all to see.
