Way to go Humans

Some of you guys out there are a bunch of jerks!!! Thanks to many many humans over the years we have now declared the Caribbean Monk Seal extinct.
This was, like most seals, a very unaggressive and curious animal that was first discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1494. He killed 8 for their meat but most people ended up killing these seals for the oil from their blubber. The last confirmed sighting was in 1952 and after much research and many expeditions scientist have now on June 6, 2008 declared them extinct. (If you have ever killed one)I hope that you are all happy for what you have done!!!

I'm seriously so bummed now, and if my giant pandas ever go extinct I'm going balistic and I know you got my back.

I thought of you today! When I had to type in a word verification to post a comment on someone's blog, it actually said some form of a word. It said "lamedj."
