This is very sad! Sounds to me that the issue is not taken too seriously either! No plan...No back up plan!!!

How sad that 'homo sapiens' cannot CARE for the animals the way they are supposed to!! Yes, sadly noted - every living thing on this planet is being destroyed by the 'human finger in the pie'!!
