Humans are monsters!
12 October 2018 | by kryptonarieSee all my reviews

It's profoundly sad, that man's biggest motivator, is his own greed. What's especially sad, is, we use the "in the name of science" claim to disguise these crimes against animals. And what's the price for exploiting the world's great wild species, it's their pain & suffering, in exchange for, fuller pockets of wealthy men. -KL
