I read this heartbreaking news a few days ago.
What. The. Fuck!
From what I read somewhere else, rhinos are killed for their horns, which are used in Chinese medicine as an aphrodisiac. We wipe out these beautiful creatures for sex, just so human beings can keep breeding?! As if that reason isn’t bad enough, we had to go hunt them down because their horns worth more than all of our asses combined. Another amazing species of animal has become extinct because of human’s greed. Sheesh!
Some would say that this is evolution, that what survives survives and what doesn’t doesn’t. Well, guess what?! Evolutionarily speaking, we are the most environmentally stupid, barbaric, greedy species that has ever existed. This is a man-made extinction, not a natural one. WE destroy the animals; it’s up to us to NOT destroy them. The sad thing is that the people with the power are the people with the guns; all the protection policies in the world are not going to stop rifle-wielding poachers from sneaking out and killing rhinos, elephants, tigers, and whatnot. Mankind is definitely a virus, determined to corrupt this planet and all its worth.The only way this planet will survives is if we become extinct!
It’s sad that mankind has no idea how important animals are to the ecosystem. We are at the top of the food chain and if we want to continue exist on this planet then we have an obligation to maintain the environment we all live in.
Me so sad 😦 😦
