Puppies Used As Drug Mules

I think it's worse when it's done to people.

Who do you care about more?

...that's what I thought.

Well... you could make the argument that someone chooses to be a drug mule, but a dog doesn't.

Of course... we all know that poverty is itself a form of coercion, so there's a sense in which someone *doesn't* choose to be a drug mule... but hoestly, that argument gets us to places that involve people having no responsibility for who they are.

So, although I care more about humans (in general) than animals (although I would save a jellyfish before saving Dick Cheney) there is a case to be made that there is something MORE unconscionable about using an animal to smuggle drugs than a human.
