Chris Packham, a British Conservationist wants to kill all pandas.
Okay well not exactly. He argues that they are an evolutionary cul-de-sac and we should stop spending millions of dollars on keeping them on the planet and we only do it because they are cute and that's not how things should be... hmm. like perhaps babies with treatable illness should left to die too , eh Chris? Poor Misguided probably well meaning mister Packham has earned himself the dubious distinction of joining the ranks of Pat Robertson, Lou Dobbs and Kanye West in the hall of shame- Oh Fuck You, Chris Packham.
Quote from Packham:
"Pandas are my frequent whipping boy. Here is a species that, of its own accord, has gone down an evolutionary cul-de-sac. It's not a strong species. Unfortunately, it's big and cute and a symbol of the World Wide Fund for Nature and we pour millions of pounds into panda conservation. I reckon we should pull the plug. Let them go, with a degree of dignity."
sidenote-doesn't the little panda above look so busted for midnight bamboo snacking
