    Incredibly sad for the farmer and his family, but sad for the wildlife too - no habitat, everything is about humans and thier greed, we are the real culprits, nature has given this earth to millions of species, not just human beings.

        Animals losing their habitats, where shall they go? Rapid growth of potion making animal life miserable and angry. Nature habitats must be preserved.
