Todays news includes the death of two white Rhinos in Kenya. They were slaughtered by poachers for their horns which are used for Asian medicines and Middle Eastern decorative handles on knives.
Other news includes the opening of the worlds tallest building- 800 meters/2650 stories- in the Middle Eastern country of Dubai which is part of the United Arab Emirates. Dubai is a known user of Rhino horn decoration. Dubai also defaulted on 30 billion dollars of debt last month. Dubai's vast income is not enough. They have to borrow money to build the worlds tallest structure and also use some percentage of borrowed moneys to promote the killing of peaceful endangered animals.
My bumper stickers are not working. Barbaric and hubristic events just continue to get worse. The time for bumper stickers is past. Better to use the whole bumper on some poacher and his client.
