Why, oh why?

The obscene effects of hunting.

Chris Snuggs, friend from my English days, linked to an item on his Facebook page about the appalling loss of elephants and rhinos. The item included this picture:

The reason I am writing about this today is to give readers notice that on Saturday, October 3 from 10:30am – 3:00pm there is a march, a global march, for Elephants and Rhinos. The item on Facebook details the location as Jefferson Square, 1101 Eddy St, San Francisco, California 94109.

If we lived closer to San Francisco we would most definitely attend.

So can you be there?

If not, can you share the message!


Back to Chris.  His blogsite Nemo Insula has a link to this wonderful photograph:


Back to Chris’ Facebook entry where he subsequently wrote:

I am flattered! I thought it was just my usual bilious rant! Actually, the killing of rhinos, tigers, elephants and so on is so surreally-pointless and evil as to be almost beyond belief. You might like this photo of a rhino I saw in Senegal from about 20 metres away! Magnificent and totally innocent creatures, unlike Homo Sapiens I fear.

Jean and I feel the same way about the hunting of any animals for any purpose other than feeding oneself.
