It didn't take very long did it? It wasn't a matter of if, but when. Thanks Cher.

It seems that any discovery will never be left untouched . Once discovered, it immediately becomes threatened. Why cant we learn to leave things alone..they say curiosity kills the does our own as our curiosity and "ingenuity" has put us in our own sad state of affairs with our planet in general.

Between the bastards who are destroying forests world wide and the asians, animals in the wild don't stand a chance.
