Praying for these beautiful animals... the thought of the word EXTINCTION is just UNACCEPTABLE when it can be prevented - the idea of it is just sickening. So HEARTbroken for our precious animals in this world that are suffering, poached, hunted, abused, etc. HUMANS who commit such atrocities against animals should be wiped out, not the animals.

N. & S. This is so heart wrenching; beautiful, majestic animals being wiped out. What insanity, "can cure AIDS"!! What heartless bastards. Karma will pay all the evil ones a visit soon enough. Killing hippos for their horns (an aphrodisiac!! ) elephants for their tusks (a status symbol!!) Japan's the Cove (the precious dolphins) Good lord! Killing precious animals for their fur, for their hides, etc. and the methods they use, I won't say anymore. I would love to see all these atrocities toward innocent, helpless animals wiped out (not the animals), in my lifetime, but I know that will never be. Thanks, Cal for posting and Charmaine, for forwarding.
