I cannot even read this... According to old diaries from oriental travels and letters we've had at home, even just a few decades ago there seemed to be several times as many wild animals out there. Now elephants in Africa become a rarer and rarer view and I've never met a jaguar in old Americas despite several trips. There seems to be no one who really cares about it. They only ramble about child benefits, lazy millennials and other stuff I don't give a flying fuck about.

There must also have been some issues in the same spirit as in the classic "how to ferry a wolf, a goat and a head of cabbage across the river?" I like Randall Munroe's answer, which involves ditching the wolf. Why did you have a wolf?

one theory is that Noah took baby dinosaurs
as to diet, humans were vegetarian before the flood, and it's debated whether animals also.

There is another theory that dinosaurs around the World where led by a guru dinosaur known for his foreknowledge. One night he had that vision Trump would become POTUS some day. He felt it was hopeless, gathered all the dinosaurs in a house he set fire at.

It's funny. You say it as if it were a real thing. Kind of like Trump.
