Wildlife Wednesday … and almost wordless as well

There were 3 very rare white giraffes in Kenya until early March. 

Along came the poachers, and then there was one.

    It is so sad that this keeps happening. I had never even heard of a white giraffe until I saw this post. Thank you for posting this.

    It is completely incomprehensible why some people are so completely without empathy for others including animals.

      I know. In the world in which the poachers in Africa live, I can imagine that they are offered financial temptations that far exceed their concern for the animals. The people with the money who do the tempting are another breed altogether. Empathy is nonexistent, greed is all.

  3. Reblogged this on Musings and Wonderings and commented:
    The ever elusive question– why are some of us so driven by greed?

  4. Something like this certainly cements for me the lack of morality and a severe shortsightedness.

      I know, it’s hard to understand, not so much for the poachers who do the killing and who might be fairly destitute, but the people who are paying them, for whom there is not a shred of excuse.

    You’re right. No words.

    So deeply sad and moving. What chance for these beautiful beasts as economies struggle and people will do anything to make money.
