We all know heartbreak.
But this is pretty stunning, disgusting and a reminder of the kind of news we should expect to see now, soon and perhaps forever more.
This is what a growth economy is all about. No, I am not an economist and that’s, yes, totally irrelevant.
The second image below, from Instagram, seems really disturbing.
Do people really not understand the ancient and pure communication that occurs between humans and animals?

Photo by @brentstirton | Today we say goodbye to Sudan, the last remaining male Northern White Rhino. He died of age related complications at Ol Pejeta in Kenya, after being cared for by devoted rangers who guarded him 24 hours a day. I was mesmerized to see the relationship between Sudan and his caregivers. It showed me that once again there is so much that remains unexplored in terms of communication and understanding between man and animals. I had no idea that this kind of relationship was possible until I saw it for myself. There are 2 remaining female Northern White Rhino at Ol Pejeta, who do a fantastic job of caring for these last remaining Northern White Rhino.
Thanks for the photo, National Geographic, but my God that even one of your employees is so clueless is unfathomable. That anyone has this kind of profound ignorance unfortunately seems to be more and more par for the course.
So sad, on so many levels.
