This one is about the harmless and very endangered pangolin which is under threat everywhere in its range. This, you might think, would mean that anyone with the capability of thought would avoid killing or otherwise harming them. Instead, sadly, the illegal trade in wildlife is flourishing and these and many other creatures are being taken and sold as pets and, even worse, are killed and sold as exotic meat.
The authorities in most areas are doing what they can to break the trade and this recent raid on a warehouse in Sumatra in Indonesia was one success. I have to say that I found the photo of thousands of frozen pangolins heart wrenching and the accompanying text makes it clear that many, many more animals - and not only pangolins because they also found bear paws - had already been sold on. Truly, I despair of humanity sometimes. At least the 96 live pangolins recovered now have a chance of a good life.
