Update: Many readers wondered about the fate of the puppy. NBC contacted Reuters and they informed us that after the pictures were taken the puppy was taken to a nearby monastery.

    It has been PROVEN time and time again that animals are THINKING, FEELING, and yes RESONING BEINGS. There are many stories where animals refused to leave a dead master, mate, or a person in need. These stories include animals rescuing humans, as well as, other other animals. Horses saving drowning foals, horse and dogs saving humans from attack, dogs saving other animals and humans in need. The list and the stories go on and on. If it is true that humans are not the only species to think, reason, and feel…and in fact sience has poven it is true, then WHY would any human choose to treat animals in the manner that they do today?
