Making Your Own Hypothesis
“Look at that,” pointed out one of the poachers.
I took a glance to a spot not far from the jeep. It was a tiger and its cub. Oh no, is this a dream again? My rifle was shoved under my arm. People started giving me the thumbs up.
“You’re good at aiming,” stated Jamal.
I set the gun to my chest to have a better shot of the tiger and took another look at it. It was playing with the cub. My fingers lay on the trigger. Should I do this?
I can’t do this. This is wrong. Simply wrong. They are animals – living beings – they have a right to live too. They breathe just like us. They feed. They breed. They have offspring to care for. If I pulled on this trigger, how would the cub feel? Loosing its parent.
Thinking back, there were many animals endangered caused by us poachers – the african elephant, pandas and eagles. Even though laws were enforced and national parks were established, we still had our ways to hunt illegally.
This can’t go on. The ecosystem will be at stake. Something has to be done. But…how?
“What are you waiting for, Azman?” a voice broke my train of thought.
