100,000 Elephants Killed By Poachers In Just Three Years, Landmark Analysis Finds
Upon hearing about the March 2015 incident where 30 Elephants Died In A Brutal, 2-Week Slaughter , my husband said, "elephants are being poached like this and I'm supposed to care about a dick torpedo and his days long orgy?" He made further comments about Caligula, but you get the gist.
For those who don't follow the news, the 'dick torpedo' in question is Lamarr "Kardashian" Odom and his recent troubles with excess at a Nevada brothel.
I answered sarcastically, "But he has a beautiful soul," ... at least according to the many twitter posts in his defense.
Elephants and other majestic animals will be heading into the sunset of their respective species because of human greed, selfishness and excess in all things, and our news cycle basically just reports on greedy, selfish, excess-driven people. Is that all people want to read or see?
If so, where are our priorities?
