S&N and finally resigned to the fact that humans will NOT stop until every last inch of earth is destroyed and every last animal is gone. At the end, we will be the only inhabitants left, left with nothing I might add.

The human population needs to be controlled and I even hate to say this but I wish we would just evaporate. We are disgusting (except for those who really do care) and dont deserve to live on this beautiful planet that God has created and provided for us..What a disappointment we are to him. *sigh*

Too bad the animals and insects dont gather and fight back, as I would gladly be on their side.

Thanks Michela, done. I was # 487 on the Care2 petition, but my husband signed yesterday as #445 and his name does not appear. This issue has been happening a lot lately with C2 petition.

Isaac Bashevis Singer Nobel Peace Prize Winner wrote in his book, 'Enemies a love story', "As often has Herman had witnessed the slaughter of animals and fish, he always had the same thought. In their behaviour toward creatures, all men were Naziís. The smugness with which man could do with other species as he pleased exemplify the most extreme racist theories the principle that might is right. Lest we forget!

If i think that owners of plantations of palm oil offering a reward for those who kill orangutans is a fact that leaves me speechless, is orrible.
The ignorance of these people is infinite because in addition to destroying the Amazon forest, the habitat of orangutans they have also created a sport of hunting primate.
Reading news like this, I think that our planet and the man has less chance of survival.
Signed the 2 petitiuons (on Care2 #534) my heart is broken but my punches are very tight, i'm very pi....d off.

Thank you, dear Michela. I was glad to add my name to the petitions. It is beyond my understanding to even imagine such hatred for an animal by a human or humans. This poor girl has suffered to terribly and yet, the very species that hurt her so much is also trying to save her life. How can she ever come to terms with that? My heart is breaking for her and all the others who had met a similar and worse fate. Along with signing petitions, we all must send the most positive energy we have to them.
