The Rights of Sentient Beings

As Gozen-sama told me, "These animals (in his case, the monkeys of Mt Hiei) have as much a right to be here as we do." Likewise, this 2yo rattlesnake has a right to coil up on the step to the temple, where he remained for nearly 24 hours. And previously there was the bear -- see Nov 13, 2913 blog -- ascending these steps and strolling around the outer walkway.
