Heh...Okay....Now how did I know this was gonna happen...? Crazy Care2....Anyway, hideous story about those mountain gorillas...Really moved people into action though, didn't it? These are such majestic creatures...It would be a crying shame if they were to become extinct...

Pipi......Saved for their own sake.
Surely not for ours since there are 6.3 billion of us......And how many gorillas are left on this planet in comparison to.

Robin......When man finally destroys
himself the animals will be free at last.......

Man is so smart he does not realize
he is cutting his own throat through
power, greed & manipulation of
everything around him.........

I just can't understand how anyone can harm, let alone kill, these magnificent creatures.
