A group of animal welfare professionals are having a picnic along the bank of a river. They notice an animal struggling to shore. As she lies gasping for air, another animal comes down the river. One of the professionals jumps in and saves him. Then another animal comes down the river and, as a second professional enters the water, a third professional says, “Shouldn’t we go upstream and see who is tossing these animals into the river? We will never save them one by one.” AHA
