Very nice post from Singapore Community Cats regarding Vesak Day celebrations, whereon animals are liberated, released from boxes and cages. Certainly it has to be adapted to an urban setting with awareness of the local environment and conditions.
We can ‘liberate’ them by being kind to stray cats and dogs, by not trapping birds, and by teaching our children to be kind to all living things as they have as much right to be on earth as we have.
We can also speak out against animal abuse and advocate a more humane way to control animal population through sterilisation instead of culling.
We can encourage our friends and family members to adopt rescued pets in animal shelters instead of buying them from pet shops.
And we should support animal welfare organisations.
Indeed, we can even liberate animals by eating less meat or better yet, by becoming vegetarians.
