    I don't really have to pretend to know anything to know that dead animals can't think.
    Science indicates that animals are conscious and that they strive to live just as we do. This is obviously what I meant. Unless you think there is no harm in killing a human since brain function ceases afterwards?

    There is harm in killing a human. A rhino isn't a human.

    I said that I doubt the rhino cares. It's dead it can't.

    Just one reason that I would dearly love to see people like this just get a huge tax bill instead of a huge tax break.

    I'm sure the rhino cared about living. That's the harm in dying against your will, including for human beings. What exactly is it about humans that makes it harmful to kill them that doesn't translate to when other animals are killed?

    Some focking rich white dude with a small penis pays so that he can make an endangered species even more endangered.

    Being the dominate species. Animals are lower life forms. We kill them for their flesh so we can eat it. We imprison them in our homes and call them pets. We enslave them to be beasts of burden, and sometimes we kill them just because we don't like the way they look.

    So... because we CAN do those things, makes it right to do those things?
