But, alas, I can understand!
It is easy to be ‘holier than thou‘ when you are NOT hungry & facing poverty. And that is the problem here. Elephants are eating crops & impacting the livelihood of poor, hungry village people. That is why I can’t get too angry about this. What would I do.
Yes, I have never had to make such a choice.
In my youth I planned to go back to Ceylon (as it was then) & devote my life to protecting the wildlife. Well, I didn’t. Do I still have time? I don’t know.
But, think about it.
What can we do?
