The Bible states (Leviticus 19:14): “You shall not curse the deaf nor place a stumbling block before the blind.” Does this commandment to the Jewish people apply only to humans or could it also be transferred upon other creatures?

Most reading this post are animal lovers, but there are some individuals (whom most of us cannot begin to understand their reason) who incur evil onto others, including animals. And there are those who incur evil onto others negligently or in denial of the reprecussions of their actions. Both groupings of people, I believe, have placed many stubling blocks before the perfectly graceful, endangered, and functionally blind Ganges River dolphin.
