“Chronicles of Narnia” author was a real animal lover

I found an Examiner.com piece the other day – written by Wayne Pacelle of the Humane Society of the US – about author CS Lewis of “Chronicles of Narnia” fame.

Pacelle notes Lewis, who died in 1963, was a solid advocate for animals.

From the article

According to the BBC biography of the man, “Lewis’s love for animals shines through all his writings, and it made him especially concerned with finding a meaning behind animal suffering.” Lewis’s “The Problem of Pain” is a notable contribution to the discussion of animal welfare, given that it came in the 1940s when there was so little interest in the topic.
