Read this incident in detail on this link: Radhanath Swami
Such is the nature of the true spiritualist - who is in union with his own divine nature - he is compassionate towards all living entities, whether they are humans, animals, or insects etc as the true spiritualist knows them all be parts and parcel of the same supreme God. His compassion extends beyond the boundaries of his own caste, country or even species, as these are based on the bodily platform. Spiritual compassion applies to all living entities, as they are spiritual in nature, irrespective of that current bodily conditions are.
Radhanath Swami is a spiritualist like that. When he was 19, as soon as arrived in India after many days of walking on foot and inconceivable troubles on the Pakistan border, a man offered him some meat to eat and he declined it, with tears in his eyes, thinking of the poor animal that must have been slaughtered. Such a compassionate person is dear to all, those who are gentle and those who are ruffians, those who have high levels of intelligence (like humans), and those who do not (animals etc), as such holy people are not envious towards anyone
