I keep thinking about these people who say it's wrong to ever help wild animals.
When we help them, I gather, we strip them of their wildness.
"Give them wildness, or give them death!" seems to be the position.

If even lions engage in cross-species adoption,
Shouldn't humans beings have the option?
