So yeah I was just chilling & looking up a place that me & my family are prob going to go to again in the next couple weeks (Wild Animal Safari). & so I was looking through the animals to see what all animals they have gotten since the last time we were there & i'm hella excited now bcuz I'm gonna be seeing a Liger, Hartman Zebra, Wildebeest, Water Buffalo, Grey Wolf (Timberwolf), & best of all pet a Scimitar-Horned Oryx for the first time in person! I'm soo excited! Well my excitement quickly became depression when I was refreshing my memory on facts I knew about each animal. Well I looked up the Scimitar-Horned Oryx since I thought they were always neat animals at the zoo & all & this is what I saw on the first site I looked on
Geographic Distribution: Now extinct in the wild
, scimitar-horned oryx once lived in northern African countries of Egypt, Senegal, and Chad. They have been reintroduced in Tunisia.
OMG! How depressing! I knew they were extremely endangered & all but I didnt realize they were no longer in the wild =( that kinda stuff makes me soooooo upset on so many different levels. It'* such a shame bcuz they are gorgeous animals! Too bad people have just gotta hunt in this f'ing world! Why can't people just leave animals in danger of extinction alone! They aren't hurting anyone so leave them the f* alone for realz!
freaking sucks but anyway i'm done with my "animal rant"....be warned, these do happen every now & then
