Help!

This is the first time I have ever reblogged a post, but I so very strongly support the sentiment in this one. We travelled extensively in Africa and India. Leopards live on the brink. I took the time to send a message and hope you will do the same.

So Cape Nature is at it again, threatening the life of a leopard. They are planning to remove a leopard for catching penguins in Betty’s Bay, Western Cape!

Please click on this link if you are not sure what or who CapeNature is…. http://www.capenature.co.za/about-us/

This is again a disgraceful action by this conservation agency! What is a leopard suppose to do?

I urge you to please send in your objections to romar@capenature.co.za
You don’t even need to be a South African citizen to make a difference. Just simply the numbers are needed to illustrate to CapeNature what they are doing is not ethical.

We have been agitating since last week to prevent the demise or removal of a leopard in Betty’s Bay. A flurry of press releases by CapeNature have been aimed at damage control and to deny them wanting to remove the leopard. We had three people connected to…

    Peggy, I don’t know what to think. The Conservation people claim that the trap was set illegally and the other group claim that the conservation group did it. I personally think that the leopards need protection from idiot people and so do the penguins but somewhere along the line humans have stuffed up.

      The leopard is getting the bad deal. I’d like them to find a way to protect that lone leopard.

    Seems to me that man has created the disturbance in the lifecycle of both penguins and leopards in the areas mentioned, and to now, consider the leopard the intruder and menace, is incorrect. The penguins are the interlopers in the last 35 years by the sound of it.

    The leopard is only resorting to attacking the birds due to lack of food, not because the penguins ARE its natural prey.

    Maybe Man should remove its protection of the alien penguin colony and let nature take its course.

    Hi Peggy..I have sent an e-mail over the killling of the penguins and the steps they are taking to stop the Leopard from returning. But also if those steps fail to work why kill the Leopard? Hope this helps 🙂

    Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. I can not see destroying one Leopard because it needs to survive (the Penguins as one food source). And if they do, another Leopard will show up and do the same. It appears that the Penguin colony is a very small one and perhaps not an endangered species (specific for that type of Penguin). And the Leopard is not killing hundreds of birds. I would just leave the fence…. and also not kill the Leopard.

    So sad. Even by trying to help, the humans are failing. Email sent, BTW.

    What a strange, foolish creature the human being is to think (s)he can dictate how nature can operate.

    There are too many people and not enough other species in this world.
