    We are in the midst of an extinction level event:

    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/evolution/library/03/2/l_032_04.html
    http://www.well.com/~davidu/extinction.html

    There are many sites out there covering the MASS extinction at it takes place.

    Some scientists are concerned that if the wrong species goes that it will topple our supremacy, and knock us out of the food chain as well.

    But then its only humans, I'm sure there are some in some alien zoo - somewhere.

    I'm going to school to study veterinary medicine. I've wanted to do this since I was ten. Just love the feeling of helping an animal in need. from your profile. You should not be a vet, just saying.

    I am hoping this is just a failed attempt at humor and you don't seriously mean that.

    Those are a different subspecies of Black Rhino... I believe they're the Southern Black Rhino. The 3 subspecies left are all critically endangered and will likely followed the Western Black Rhino into extinction.

    I just saw this on the news this morning where they where showing them airlift one by the legs.

    Hopefully they will thrive and come back and be taken of the extinct list. I believe they were hunted for their horns. If they want the damn horns so bad when don't they just use a tranquilizer gun to take them. The government could give license to those willing to tranquilize them to sell the damn horn and that would prevent poachers from poaching them. There are no more animals bigger than them that they need to use their horn to survive so I think it would serve the greater good to just let them have the damn horn as long as they don't kill the rhino's.


    Extinct is extinct. You can't be taken off the extinct list. The key is to prevent the other subspecies from becoming extinct as well. Poachers should be shot on site.

    Okay first off. I already work at a Vet office. I'm getting hands on training and lots off it. Just because i made a little joke about me not careing about a Rhino....has nothing to do with me wanting to be a vet. Oh and as a Vet,I would not be dealing with such animals as Rhinos. So sweetie stay off my profile. Just saying.


    You are such a noncompassionate asshole. I agree, you should not be a vet. I sure as hell wouldn't let you touch my goldfish much less my dog.

    And what was that jab about "staying off your profile"? If you don't want people to know certain information about you keep it off your profile. BTW speaking of profiles, the rich, BMW driving daddies don't want queeny money-hungry gold diggers like you FYI....

    It's disgusting to think that we live in modern times but that the power from lack of evolved mentalities throughout our planet can be allowed to persist, by the rest of us, which clearly has such a devastating impact on our planet and it's inhabitants.

    RIP Western Black Rhino. You always knew that they would kill you off before the white ones; same old hollywood shizzle.

    Seriously though, sad times. We all have a responsibility to do our parts, in any way possible to eradicate that kind of bullshit, it's gone on for too damn long. A wake up call for me too, not to just be all mouth and intention, yet, no followed through action on this kind of fuckry.

    This..

    These are few of the visible species that have been wiped from the face the face of the earth. Who know how many species of creatures we don't know that have been wiped out because of ignorant greedy way.

    Not as much fun to hunt as the white rhino. The black rhino needs to be bred in captivity and re-introduced.

    As an Ecology major, this makes me sick icon_sad.gif I am ready to dedicate my life to changing this world and its arrogant belief that we are the only ones occupying it. No animal should become extinct because of your actions. over 20% of mammals are currently endangered we need to accept that we are in the wrong

    99% of all the species that have ever lived are extinct.

    Such a shame that a beautiful creature is now extinct. Humanity is at fault, poaching, tearing down the animals territory. I feel so ashamed that humans have to "claim' so much on this planet. We dom't ever "own' any land, ever.
