Animals don’t hunt to extinction even carnivores go Vegan to protect their stock. Then here’s us in three words, kill them all. The most complex environment in our solar system and we have to decide whether its a good idea to keep it habitable. As if we have another f—— choice. Source: Snyder, G. (1980).
