That’s the whole problem
And isn’t the GOP supposed to be the elephant lol
Photoshop an Obama sticker to the bumper of the car!
I was doing research in Namibia when my truck and I had an elephant encounter. She wasn’t one of those park elephants that was accustomed to vehicles, but she didn’t tip me over, just gave a couple of really good shoves. At the time I was not laughing...
“I told you I don’t like gangsta rap!!!”
Take a trip back in time. Read Kipling’s “Letting In The Jungle.”
Rather crude “photo-chopping” IMO......
It does serve one purpose, however. Imagine you’re a subsistence farmer in South Africa and six or so of these critter invade your sorghum/melon patches regularly. Elephants aren’t dumb herbivores. They need to eat some 400 lbs of browse daily. In “natural” settings they have to work damn hard to get marginal food value. Raiding some farmer’s patch means getting far more food value with far less effort.......
Who says “capitalism” only encompasses human endeavors ?
African professional hunters have been shooting elephants in the thousands for decades to protect villages/farmers. One traditional “bonus” has been a “feast” for the locals. Just as “killing” safaris provide sustenance for local villagers whenever game is shot nearby. >PS
There’s a lesson in this for the freaking Democrats lol
