@MariusDemocratius
Agree on that. And on top of that it is the elite, that goes safary-hunting there.
They don’t give a fuck about extinction.
Some of them would even be very proud of a fact that they killed the last species
(like it was with tasmanian tiger and the fucker named Wilf Batty)
I guess they are overcompensating their seriously small penises.

Hunting sucks. Sure, get super fit, put on a pair of nike’s take a big ass knife and THEN call yourself a hunter.

@neeraj2608 They made a movie about her taking care of the baby baboon, it was not
playing with prey, she stayed by the baby baboons side for a long time
As you well pointed out, we are not the only species with emotions and
the desire for life.

Thank you, so well said, hopefully their selfless dedication and
appreciation for these and all animals and nature will start an awakening in the all too
self consumed people.
It’s time for everyone to wake up and stop killing this sacred animals and trees for tables
ashtrays, rugs, coats……..!!! A bit neanderthal.

this is what we’ll do … give 500k poacher to the lions to eat and then leave them alone

everyone happy

Ha, that’s a rare answer to get.

@scavengedfantasyname Ok.

I’m just used better by these talks. This all makes a very banal impression to me. Sometimes I dont even see what they mean (Lion hunting Hyena, seriously?). I’ve seen better examples for”personality” in random documentaries: like lions fighting crocodiles, or swimming to save their little ones. This is forgettable and off-putting in turn.

@neeraj2608 they are trying to make a point about the unique personalities of animals by showing lions slowly killing an elephant, who at some point loses his will to live and a little later regains it. At this point the lions are a source of horror, as one can imagine it’s a horrible way to die. The other one: it was obviously maternal instinct, or else it would be dead earlier. But we all know animals have instincts, so what. There weren’t any impressive examples. I expected this to be better.

@scavengedfantasyname Conflicting sympathies how? By anthropomozphizing, I meant for example that when they showed Legadema sparing the life of the baby baboon, we automatically jump to the conclusion that it’s her “maternal instinct” (in fact, they use those very words in the voice-over) when it could equally be plain curiosity (like cats playing with their prey). It could be maternal instinct, for all I know. The point is, they’re trying to help us identify more with our fellow-creatures, no?

@neeraj2608
I’m just saying their examples create conflicting sympathies… it has nothing to do with anthropomorphizing them (in fact, I think that are mostly genuine interpretations). But then, maybe it’s best to keep such a gritty and realistic picture.

@scavengedfantasyname Why? They’re telling us that nature is wondrous, that there are so many things that we don’t understand and yet don’t hesitate to destroy. They’re telling us that even animals feel the same emotions that we do, that each animal wants to live as much as every one of us does.
We’re not willing to respect the fact that animals and trees have as much a natural right to exist as any human. Perhaps anthropomorphizing nature /is/ the next best approach to inspire us.

This is horrible to watch, and baffling to think that they would expect this to make any positive impact. Mother instinct for another species (of which the original mother was killed) and a victim animal’s will to fight, these are both deeply conflict-laden incidents. I sort of get their point, but they make a very naive impression with this presentation.

There are more than 10,000 tigers in private cages in the United States alone. Tigers are not nearly as endangered as people think.

I just had to euthanize my himalayan who was dying of leukemia. So small cats can provide life lessons, too.

Overall, nice video, just 2 things…

1 – we don’t have a spiritual connection with cats, we think they’re cute for the same reason we think the Na’vi were cute and housecats are cute.
2 – This problem needs to be resolved politically, there will always be poaching if there is a demand for furs. You can’t stop people wanting it, but you can stop people getting it.

Some states in Africa have conservation laws, cats will survive there.

This was moving, but throughout the talk I could not get over how each of the speakers’ look like felines of some kind.

The elephant has tusks for such an occasion, anyway on my last safari I saw 3 lions, on the one before looking for tigers we saw none. Should the idea of breeding in captivity be frowned at.

@4EMF Great speech, I loved it. But it is lose not loose. They are gone instead of flapping in the wind or about to be undone, or not in there usual containment. Have a nice day.
