Unhappy "Countdown to Extinction"

I was just watching the WWF "Countdown to Extinction" They showed how they slaughter wolves and sea turtles and such. It was absolutely disgusting.

One case, when they banned wolf hunting just outside algonquin park some hunters slaughtered and beheaded one of the tagged wolves, mounted it's head and collar on a wall and said, "Don't Dare US"...

And with the sea turtles, it showed footage of them cutting the shell off a sea turtle while it was living and squirming. It was bleeding all over and no one cared, they were all just gawking.

I am so saddenned and disgusted. I would honestly be a WWF donator if I had the money, but until i get that job, I'm afraid I just get to be one of the people who are royally pissed off at the ignorance of people...

Which is why I feel more and more misanthropic day by day!

Well hopefully Mother Nature will unleash more of her weapons like SARS, AIDS and screw us all over. Then maybe we'll have more respect for her.

Yeah I saw something like that not long ago all about Asia and China and how they catch sharks and dolphins. They chop off their fins ( while they are still alive) and throw them back in the water bleeding like hell and suffering. They do this as if it is just a normal thing. Someone needs to teach these countries a lesson on the fact that animals are not infanite in population and that they DO feel pain. These two countries in preticuliar are constantly over-harvesting and leading animlas to their extinction. It makes me VERY mad that they are so inconsiderate.

I have seen how they prepare those turtles for food in wet markets in asia, and it is pretty grotesque. The turtles are still alive when they chop at the plastron with a cleaver... definitely not a sight for the squeamish.

We are facing similar problems in the United States southeast with our eastern diamondbacks. The populations are thinning like wild fire, they have all be disappeared from their northern range, but still we have rattlesnake round ups every year. Hundreds are needlessly slaughtered.

What is the WWF? I donít mean to be ignorant, but the WWF to me is World Wrestling Federalation.

ha! Not all this is only going on in other countries.

Just a few weekends ago we were at the Stoughville (sp) Flea Market, and some people were breaking the necks of various birds right in front of people, not to mention having crates FULL of chickens, pigeons and other birds being abused.

People Fu**in Suck, I can stand people who abuse animals in any way. We need to that to some of them and see how they like it, cut off the fishermans arms and leave them floating, or mount one of those hunters heads on a plack and put "Don't Dare US"
