I love the world of wild things, so I was really sad to see this South African Silver-backed Jackal a victim of the fast, undisciplined way that people drive in South Africa's rural areas, often well over the speed limits. I'm also sad to see how we increasingly take over the habitats of our world's loving creatures, till one day, they will only be found in zoos. . .
