Birds

S’il a de la chance, l’oiseau n’est pas englué, n’est pas mitraillé, ne s’écrase pas contre les vitres des gratte-ciels, n’est pas désorienté pas les îlots lumineux des plateformes en mer, n’est pas ingéré ou décapité par une éolienne. L’oiseau est au carrefour des insecticides, des routes, des lignes électriques et de la déforestation. Les oiseaux mangent trop souvent des baies rouges de plastique et des fragments bleus de latex. La disparition progressive des oiseaux prive la Terre de ses plus belles musiques.

All dials are in the red. On the endangered species market prices are soaring. China and the world exotic pet trade are weighing heavily. The red-fronted parrot in Congo smuggled by Blue Helmets are sold for 800 US$ on Internet. Rhino horns reach 100,000 US$/kg, leopard skin more than 30,000 US/$. Mumbai golden youth gets high on cobra venom (180,000 US$/l). Isilo, the elephant who became a symbol of South Africa, is dead. His 2 tusks worth 600,000 US$ have disappeared. Poachers were the first to find his body by spotting the vultures. Suspicion lingers. Daytime rangers become night-time poachers. Prices go wild, the violence does also. Animals, thieves and rangers fall. Traffickers kill each other like traffickers of a drug cartel. Gangs rule, gangrene thrives. This is war. Justice is incoherent. From severe punishment to set an example to a mere bail, justice sometimes goes astray. Traffickers are often very young. Poachers ride BMWs. Killing methods are both modern and archaic.
