    Jobless activists! I wonder when the life of an animal became worthier than that of a human. Another conservationistic error! The major problem we have in this world is that most people refuse to trade places with those concerned in particular incidents before shouting. Among those activists must be some parents, and should their own children fall into that same pit under the same conditions, they would have still wanted the animal dead to save their son. So what are we talking about?

      Thanks @ Metu. I don’t know how some people are reasoning? they prefer the boy dead while the animal walks freely. Some of the activists are racially biased because the boy is black period.

    This is where the mentality of this so called developed/western world get it wrong. What are they protesting for?, because black life don’t matter?.

    The World is still what it is and we are still who we are….
