Will nature survive the brutality of humans?

It was revealed on RTE today that there is no legislation whatsoever regarding the possession of exotic animals in Ireland.

This means that the savage humans can do as they please when it comes to these vulnerable animals as witnessed by the barbaric treatment of a kangaroo in a Dublin hotel.

This situation is quite common in banana republics where ignorant and corrupt politicians are only interested in human animals from which they buy votes.

I have no doubt that stupid humans will eventually wipe themselves out. The only question is:

Will the rest of nature survive our brief but brutal presence on the planet?
