Our We Human Beings or Monsters

I will probably be a little mean here because I can not see how in an age of research, understanding and wonder we could still want to go an aim a gun at an animal just to bring home it’s body parts.  And to do so to an animal that is highly intelligent and wonderfully loyal is beyond me.  Yes they are hunting big game animals and making furniture out of them.

I felt so helpless because I had even went so far as to write the President to state my opinion on this subject which is so out of character for me and it seem to work but the the wonderful court systems of my beloved country have decided to overrule this decision to ban hunting and so there you go.  My heart is heavy so I plea to all of us around the world to answer this question WHY?

We close circuses so kids can no longer see elephants or lions or tigers because they were cruel but we kill them for a craved piece of jewelry.  A Queen should be ashamed to have such a jem.

Is the picture you would like to be known for.  I hope never to see this person in my life.  Elephants mate for life, take a long time to have children and are so loving to each other so we kill them.  I think we would do better to learn from them.  Heaven help us all for what we are.

I am going to share a portion of an article I found on snopes.com:

WWW.snopes.com is the link if you would like to read the whole article.

So today I am in sorrow but I wonder when would I be able to end the sorrow.  Do I go to your house or remain away for fear of the elephant coffee table I may find!   Are we human beings or monsters?

Glass Elephant

Yesterday while out filming my small section of Wild Life on the Run I stopped in to buy some deli items for breakfast and in a case next to the register was a hand blown glass elephant that caught my eye.  I just had to have it so I asked the price and decided to wait for awhile to consider though not a bad price for the item I was not out to spend $22.00 on anything that morning.

After getting home and doing a few chores I checked me facebook account and discovered an article about the elephants slowing fading from our world today as we know it.  The decline is actually going faster then what as been predicted in the past.  Elephants are hunted and killed by poachers every fifteen minutes so by the year 2020 we will have a no elephant population unless you count the ivory statues we have on our hearths.   Now I am thinking perhaps I should go buy the glass elephant to hold as a reminder of a unique and intelligent animal man has hunted to extinction for a nick knack that can look great in glass.
