So then you'd rather they not be hunted at all, thus causing their already overpopulated numbers to increase exponentially? They already pose a serious problem for many African villagers in terms of trampling/eating a year's worth of crops in half a day, killing villagers who may not even see them in the bush as they travel, and completely ravaging the vegetation in their home ranges.WarBaby said:
How is is BS? The elephant is painting. It matters not about its training.100 Round Drum said:http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/elephantpainting.asp I'll be first to admit that I thought this was BS. Seems they do have a photographic memory, I always thought that was just an old wives tale.
Under the Endangered Species Act, the African elephant is listed as a threatened species and the Asian elephant is listed as an endangered species. "Endangered" means a species is considered in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range, and "threatened" means a species is considered in danger of becoming endangered. I think it is disgusting that there is a possibility this animal could become extinct from existence. Id rather they not be hunted at all. And as Phreakmode said, this was a thread about painting and not hunting. With that said, im shutting it down.Armed Ferret said:
