Universal prize for animals


A sort of Nobel Prize for animals can be awarded either for exemplary conduct of humans toward animals or the reverse. Such a prize can be dedicated, for example, to people such as Naoto Matsumura, the Japanese man who stayed in the forbidden zone after Fukushima to help the animals. Even if his stay was forbidden by the positive law in force, the ethical principle to help those animals in distress prevailed on a moral basis. Such an award would then be a lesson for human laws – to be closer to the principle of moral justice for everybody (humans and animals), to be more ethically-oriented and equally considered by the law.
