January 2008: This female Indian Rhino suffered for 35 hours before she died. Her calf was murdered, and as she stood over her dead calf, she was shot twice and her horn was removed while she was still alive. This murder occurred in Kaziranga National Park, where sadly, poaching is on the rise.

Interesting post. Just a couple of points.
1. Check the sources on your pictures. The one with the Rhino missing his horn is a fake. Posssibly others are as well.
2. Most of you animal rights wackos believe in evolution. Why don't the animals just evolve.
I am not saying that it is okay to treat animals cruelly, I do have a soft spot in my heart for them. But, if an animal has to die so a human can live, so be it.
As far as the pollution pictures, get real. You did not show the replanting of the removed forest, or mention that we are working dillagently to clean up our act. We clean up spills, and we are reducing emissions.
P.S. I thought the pic of the kids that had killed the deer was cute. Children need to be taught how to shoot, and hunt. This is how people survived for thousands of years. There is no assurance that we will not need the skill to hunt in the future the way that things are going.

Well its time to start taking action and turn off that internet, get rid off all your modern conveniences, dig yourself a hole, and eat insects the rest of your life because that is he only way your are not going to be harming "nature".
You can show of all the nasty pictures of dead or dying animals, but i can also show you beavers felling trees for their own homes, lions killing jaguars just because they don't like them, chimpanzees beating each other to death in some sort of monkey gangbanging, army ants rampaging and eating everything in their path, leaf cutter ants destroying entire forests, blah blah blah.....nature happens.
Humans are a product of nature the just happen to have the power to shape our environment. If any other animal had that same power I could bet it would o just about the same thing to enhance and secure its own life.
Be glad you are at the top of the chain and stop trying to ruin it for everyone else because we all know you won't give up anything meaningful yourself to be "one with nature."
