    Who says snakes don't have emotions and needs? Are you saying they're like a table?

    Rights such as protection of habitat for some, protection from extinction for others
    There are laws for that.

    and the right to love, kindness, food and shelter for our domestic furbabies. That is where "I" am coming from!
    Humans don't have these rights, so you want animals to have them?

    You are too funny. Have you ever curled up with a snake? They have needs, but operate on extinct!
    The endangered species laws are being eroded on a daily basis. Congress doesn't care about wildlife, wetlands or anything else that would protect the different species. Just picture Sarah Palin shooting wolves from a helicopter!

    Humans don't have the right to love and kindness? Unbelievable!

    Snakes have much less emotions than a dog has for example but they still have a certain level of emotions.
    If laws are being violated or ignored then it's the fault of the justice system.
    There is no such thing as "the right to love and kindness". There is the right to free movement, the right to life, etc. not "the right to love and be loved" or some bollocks like that.
