South Africa has announced it will reverse its 1995 ban on killing elephants and resume culling of elephants in May. Elephant family groups could be rounded up by helicopters and shot from the air by marksmen.

Culling has been reinstated due to fears of elephant overpopulation in protected areas and the habitat destruction that too many elephants can cause. But this plan disregards the fact that elephants are extremely intelligent, social creatures with strong family bonds. It is well known that elephants mourn their dead, and killing large numbers of these sensitive creatures is cruel and unethical.

Please urge the South African government to continue exploring non-lethal options for dealing with growing elephant populations.

My sister's kitty is sick and vet bills are enormous. I just thought I'd post this in case anybody wanted to check out her journal and see about Omar, and maybe say a prayer for him (and her too, as this is really hard on her) and just send good vibes their way.

Wow. Thankfully everybody I know is safe, but I have driven on this bridge so many times. This is just unbelievable....
