That headline gets a big "DUH" !

Yet on the same page i see a news story trumpeting "Kenya Rail Receives China Aid"...
and some wonder why officials look the other way :(

This is an animal holocaust! There is no one who will help the animals.

This should indeed be a matter for The United Nations. Set up a Wildlife Protection Force - NOW!

Noted, tweeted, shared, tweeted, shared. How sad and how common-place.

Tried to give Ellen M a star but the computer won't let me yet - sorry. She's right - the two things are connected.

It is the greed of humanity that puts these animals in harms way! All lives are precious & a God given gift to every being. Respect & protect all lives as your own is treasured! Thanks Jill.
