Does an alternative not exist? Surely it must! My heart aches for these majestic animals. As a so called progressive society we seem to focus on continued devastation as opposed to preservation. What have we become!? For example, serial pedophiles are a public safety risk, do we shoot them? No! We allow for investigation and due process and if proven guilty, the offender is provided a much lighter sentence than death and then eventually released, to do it all over again. The short term imprisonment is at a cost far more expensive than relocating an animal. Also, it would likely be cheaper to execute these people than it would be an animal. Or, at least it should be. Please tell me the difference or which animal you would prefer to be able to roam free?
