Wow, a very powerful & moving, but very depressing and disturbing thread.
Those pictures really made me feel horrible for those animals, I always hate the commercials on TV that talk about animal abuse. Not because the
message is wrong, but because it's very depressing. My ex literally used to cry when those sort of commercials came on, and since we have broke up I
understand a lot more now why she was so upset.
We have all been ignorant in our lives towards the truth about how destructive the human race is. Obviously we can't take out every person cutting
down trees or killing whales, but we can sure as hell do something about it!
There really needs to be a law (or is there some kind already?) that states for every tree cut down, one must be replaced, heck make it two. Wildlife
sanctuaries are doing some good, but there just aren't enough of them
For every ecosystem we destroy when we take away natural habitats for animals there needs to be consequences for those who are doing the actual
damage. I know some people lack sympathy and compassion when it comes to other humans, but there is even less for animals. However, put yourself in
their 'shoes' for a moment and think about how it would feel to have your home, your town, your state, your country, your world 'cut down' or
removed to make a giant parking lot. None of us can even fathom what that would feel like, and you can say all you want about how the human species
is being killed off as well but that doesn't even compare to how destructive we are towards animals & their environments.
This new show on the Discovery Channel really pisses me off Swamp
. In the commercials for it they say something like how tough you have to be to do this... I think it should say something more along
the lines of how destructive and horrid these people are. Oh and I believe in the commercial it says that they "need heart" to do this job. Are
you kidding me? I think they screwed up, because it should say "lack of heart."
Thanks for the thread, I hope it opens some eyes, and for those of us with our eyes open, hopefully it made us all open them even wider.
Save the animals, save the planet!
