Our planet is meant to be shared. This is why there are so many different species living side-by-side.
But what happens when one species ends up coming a little too close to another species?
The Malaysia Animal Association took to their Facebook page to showcase the body of two female elephants that have already started to rot. It is believed that they died from consuming poison.
They wrote, “Starvation with the hope of finding food ends in tragic deaths. Two female elephants were found dead by eating poison at a vegetable garden near the Kahang Dam and Kluang Forest Reserve, Johor. The two elephants are believed to have died more than two weeks ago as their decomposing carcasses were found by people in the area.”
As to whether they were poisoned on purpose or accidentally is still unknown but one thing is clear, they wandered too close to human territory because their own habitat is being overrun with logging activities.
“For the last few years, many critically endangered and protected wild animals have died as a result of straying away from their habitats. The lack of roaming areas such as forests and the shortage of food sources are the main causes of hundreds of wild animals dying as they are either poisoned, killed or victims of accidents,” they added.
Their message was clear.
“Stop deforestation. Stop logging.”
Are we really that incapable of sharing the planet with other species that we have to cut down every square inch of our rainforests for the sake of another mall or condominium?
It’s truly saddening to see how these animals are treated with such intolerance and lack of compassion. We’re heading towards a world where animals are likely to become fossils and flashbacks and it’s disappointing that we don’t really care.
It’s not too late, but it might be soon so let’s buck up and protect our animals from potential extinction.
