Jesus! Someone had to pay $9M because they filed a lawsuit against someone else whom they thought were abusing elephants? What the elephant! Smile | :)

I have no idea if those animals were being abused, but hundreds or perhaps thousands of elephants and other animals are being brutally hacked to death for their horn, ivory, skin, etc., in the wild. At least the animals in zoos and circuses get to live longer.

I think it would be great if these protesters can spend their money and efforts towards making the lives of those animals in the wild a little more safer. May be help preserve endangered species, prevent poaching etc., instead of spending $9M to settle a case that they couldn't have possibly won.

What do these people think? Confused | :confused:
