Media often talks about the dark side of humans, when it comes to animals and how we treat them! From festivals where dogs are burned and slaughtered to elephants being tortured for learning new tricks. What they fail to report, most of the times is that, for every animal abused, there are many that are rescued and saved from being butchered.
