SLAUGHTERED

 

For as long as man has walked the plains of Africa animals have been killed and slaughtered not for food or to survive but for the ivory that grows from the animal itself. Elephants and Rhino are hunted and killed they have their ivory stripped from them and a region of over 12,000 square miles of endless expanse is peppered with the corpse of these majestic animals.Year after year poachers set traps kill and maim without reservation never thinking of the animals itself only the money that will come from the ivory they steel.Left alone these giants of the plains walk through time shaping the landscape the Matriarch lead her heard from water hole to water hole so her family can quench their thirst before setting off on yet another long walk through the blistering dry heat only Africa can offer.The rugged beauty of these beasts were once seen all over Africa but now their numbers grow few. A time will come when they will walk the earth no more and like the mammoths of a time long gone they will be no more.People will always be driven by greed I hope a time will come when the animals the world over will stop suffering because of man’s desire to steel what should never be taken.
