What animals can teach us

April is Prevention of Animal Abuse Month and the Greater New Haven Cat Project will presents “Let’s Ask the Animals,” a event in which participants can learn to explore how humans are like pigs, chickens, cows and sheep, organizers said.
The event, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. April 19, will be held at the New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St., and a film produced by The Association for the Study of Animal Behavior will be shown. The program is suggested for children ages 7-10 and their parents, organizers said.
This film shows “how animals use their senses, learn from experience, and need companionship and exercise, just like humans,” organizers said in a statement.
The interactive program is “designed to promote appreciation and respect for animals by learning and talking about what we have in common with them.
It’s a wonderful way for parents to share their appreciation of animals with their growing children,” the statement said.

Each child receives a rubber bracelet and a coloring book, organizers said.

More information is available at or by calling 203-946-8835.
