WOULD THE CAMERAMAN ALSO DO THE SHOOTING?

BAMBI HIT SQUAD

Because I am a stranger in a country where I do not speak the language, a lot of my contact with the outside world comes from Facebook, and it is through social media that I catch wind of trends, sully myself in American politics, and learn what my friends far away worry and get excited about.

Recently, I’ve noticed that a number of pictures of grieving baby elephants and rhinos have floated past me in the never-ending torrent of images that is Facebook, and these always engender quite a viewer/reader response.  Surely there is someone out there who notes these trends, and in the search for a sure-fire show biz winner, is hatching a scheme to capitalize on the grieving baby syndrome.

What about a Bambi Hit Squad, a crew of killer filmmakers who mow down animal mothers in order to film their grieving offspring?  Dub a simple voice-over by an earnest environmentalist over ninety minutes of the melancholy antics of various orphaned baby animals and you’ve got yourself a sure-fire hit.

Just an idea, but it seems like such a sound one I wonder if there isn’t already a crew in the field already doing just this. If not yet, there soon may be.  Today there was another post, this one about grieving coyotes and wolves.

  1. Uganda recently removed 300 baby elephants from their mothers so as to send an order to China. This may have started the meme. Who doesn’t love an elephant? Especially if you are not gardening around them. Don’t you get “The New York Times”. “The Guardian” on-line is free.

    Dont let the media world shape you in anyway
    Goggle elephants that paint and you can see there more going on in the animal world than we can ever know
