Attention Big Cat Lovers and Friends!  You will not believe this story posted on CNN's webpage.  The link is listed below.  It is copywritten material, so I couldn't post it on my page.

http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/africa/11/22/ethiopia.lions.ap/index.html

It sickens me to know how many creatures suffer at the hand of mankind (kind?) for a profit of any size.  Money is at the root of all evil.  


Something that's upset me this week is that it's just began to get cold in Florida - not cold like the northern part of the country, obviously, but cold enough to need a coat.  I can't get over how many fur-trimmed coats I've already seen and it's not even a truly cold state.  It's just insane.  One lady I saw today was in Petsmart (pet supply store) buying for her dog in a fully fur-lined and fur-trimmed coat.  It was upsetting and I couldn't help but wonder what animal -more and likely, animals- suffered for that garment.  I couldn't distinguish what type fur it was.  She probably has no idea what she is truly supporting by buying and owning that coat.  WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO WAKE THEM UP?

THIS SICKENS ME. IF FUNDS ARE THE PROBLEM, MANY ORGANIZATIONS WOULD SUBSIDIZE IF ASKED. WHY POISON, SELL AND PERVERT A NATIONAL COMMODITY? THE IDEA OF HUNTING AND/OR "STUFFING" A RARE BEING IS SO, SO SAD. EXTINCTION OF YET ANOTHER SPECIES APPEARS CLOSE AT HAND. COULD REPUTABLE ZOOS TAKE THE CUBS? I SAW NO DISCUSSION OF A POSSIBLE SOLUTION OR PUBLIC OUTRAGE OVER THIS. DID I MISS IT?
