Really, is there no end to human stupidity when it comes to exploiting – and harming – animals for vain purposes?
In recent weeks, tourists in Argentina killed a baby dolphin as they passed it around on the beach so selfies could be captured. And, shortly after, a fool in Florida pulled a small shark from the water so he could pose with it before tossing it back into the ocean.
The only good news concerning humans helping animals, recently, concerns a killer whale that was stranded off the coast of Canada. Residents spent six hours tossing ocean water on the whale until the tide came back in and it was able to swim away.
This unfortunate news, however, concerns a woman from Macedonia who harmed a swan for the sole purpose of capturing a selfie with it.
Metro.co.uk reports that the woman dragged the swan from the shoreline of Lake Ohrid by its wing, then left it to die on the beach.
Since then, photos of her holding the frightened bird have gone viral.
According to Macedonia Online, the bird “remained motionless after the encounter.”
The website states:
“According to witnesses, the swan itself didn’t react to the Bulgarian woman’s approach, as they are very peaceful and used to no one bothering them.”
Such barbaric behavior should not be considered acceptable; humans must evolve beyond their own selfish desires and live as stewards of the Earth – ensuring all its inhabitants are well cared for.
