Professor says science justifies compassion for animals

Dr. Marc Bekoff isn’t just a compassionate person; he’s a scientist who presents plenty of evidence to make a practical case for compassion toward animals. Tonight he will speak on the topic at the Tattered Cover Bookstore on 16th Street in Denver as he promotes his newest book on animal behavior:“Why Dogs Hump and Bees Get Depressed: The Fascinating Science of Animal Intelligence, Emotions, Friendship, and Conservation”.


Yes, Bekoff is as honest and upfront as he is analytical, and while he keeps a practical, professional tone in his approach, he makes no bones about being compassionate toward all creatures great and small. Compassion toward animals can be backed up as a scientific necessity for ecological survival of humans, he argues.
