​Humans on a Pursuit of Self-Destruction.

Global Warming, imbalance in the ecosystem, Extinction of species and what not, humans have profoundly attributed to every mentioned issue. Overpopulation, greed of more and what not, humans have always proven them epitome of destruction.
Another incident to the self destruction bandwagon has been reported in the Gutta district of Patna, where localities Killed and hung a rare member of Pangolin species.
With its armoured shell and peculiar gait,  pangolin looks more like an anteater prepped for medieval battle than an animal under threat. Illegal trade in South Asia, however, has now rendered the scaly mammals the most trafficked animal on earth, with some estimates claiming that sales now account for up to 20 per cent of the entire wildlife black market.
In response to the pangolin’s plight, numerous campaigns have been launched to raise awareness, including the SavePangolins organisation and an app, Roll with the Pangolins, which was endorsed by Prince William in his role as President of United for Wildlife. What’s more, in 2012 Sir David Attenborough chose the Sunda pangolin, a species distributed throughout South East Asia, as one of his ten favourite species he would ‘save’ from extinction.
Some say it as an act of self-defence, but can killing of a harmless creature be cited?We have been gifted with the ability to think, but an impulsive decision has costed a life yet again, and is inadmissible where constant efforts are been made to save an extincting animal.
