French Journalist Urges People Not to Kill Mosquitoes as Deadly Dengue Outbreak Plagues South East Asia

A French journalist and animal rights advocate is urging people not to kill mosquitoes and let them suck blood while many southeast Asian countries deal with a growing number of dengue cases.

Aymeric Caron, who describes himself as an anti-specists, recently said that people should allow mosquitoes to suck their blood to help the pests obtain proteins for their eggs and that killing them is “embarrassing for anti-specists who realize they are being attacked by a mother trying to nourish her children,” according to The Independent.
