*start rant here =P*
If you are an avid reader of mine you’ll know that I watch this live web feed Wild Earth Live Safari. Any-ways, on their Facebook page (one of them anyways) they’ve decided that people are not allowed to post anything about poaching or hunting? It’s a wildlife page on conservation land that has a wide range of animals that are heavily endangered, and they don’t want posts about poaching and hunting because it’s not “nice”?
People are all for it too, except for me…I’ve created a little bit of a ho ah…Aww the poor little human beings are all put out by the articles saying that they animals they claim to love so much are being tracked, hunted, beheaded. We’re watching these animals for free, and you don’t want post some articles because its “not nice”. I think it’s the LEAST we can do for these animals! Get the articles out there.
Make the people aware of how bad it is out there!
I cannot turn my back on these animals as we are lucky enough to watch these drives for free, educating us, teaching us and not only do the animals ask us for nothing, we are the only ones who can speak up for the animals. If a group of people who understand and see these amazing creatures in their family groups and their every day habit…Turn our back and not talk about the realities, because it’s not “nice”…My heart is literally broken.
This video is of a young Matimba male called “Junior”. Junior is a young male and will be forced by his Dad and Uncle to leave the pride soon, he’s just getting to old to hang around anymore. Junior does not have any brothers to leave with and their does not seem to be a young male coalition around that he might be able to join. Junior will more than likely have to survive on his own and far away from the safety of the conservation. Into the path of poachers and hunters…How can anyone look at him and go and pretend that this isn’t happening. Why would anyone want to do nothing and not stand up and say “No! We wont allow this to keep happening!”
