Question: Dear Kryon: I live in Spain. I am sorry if I will ask you a question you might have already answered, but the translations of your books are very slow and I might not have gathered all information you have already given. I am quite concerned about abandoned animals. It seems that many people buy animals for their children and as soon as they grow, they set them out somewhere. Recently I had the occasion to see a small kitten in the middle of the street. I did not immediately react, since I could have stopped and taken it, without getting out of the car. So, I went on and at the first occasion I could turn, I went back to see if I could take the kitten, but it was to late, somebody had already killed it. This happened some month ago, but I still feel very sorry for that kitten. I just would like to know, what kind of entity are these animals and how does this fit in our world. Are these entities which choose this kind of life, like we do choose our kind of Human life? I see so many abandoned animals and every time I see one, my heart aches... I would like to know more about them.

Answer: Dear one, indeed the answer has been given, but let us give it again so you all understand. Animals are here on earth for three (3) reasons.

(1) The balance of biological life. . . the circle of energy that is needed for you to exist in what you call "nature."

(2) To be harvested. Yes, it's true. Many exist for your sustenance, and this is appropriate. It is a harmony between Human and animal, and always has. Remember the buffalo that willingly came into the indigenous tribes to be sacrificed when called? These are stories that you should examine again. The inappropriateness of today's culture is how these precious creatures are treated. Did you know that if there was an honoring ceremony at their death, they would nourish you better? Did you know that there is ceremony that could benefit all of humanity in this way. Perhaps it's time you saw it.

(3) To be loved and to love. For many cultures, animals serve as surrogate children, loved and taken care of. It gives Humans a chance to show compassion when they need it, and to have unconditional love when they need it. This is extremely important to many, and provides balance and centering for many.

Do animals know all this? At a basic level, they do. Not in the way you "know," but in a cellular awareness they understand that they are here in service to planet earth. If you honor them in all three instances, then balance will be the result. Your feelings about their treatment is important. Temper your reactions with the spiritual logic of their appropriateness and their service to humanity. Honor them in all three cases.

Elephant`s carcass found in Bengkalis

Antara News, Wednesday, March 24, 2010 17:11 WIB

Bengkalis, Riau (ANTARA News) - A Sumatran elephant (elephant maximus sumateraonsis) was found dead in Mandau sub district, Bengkalis District, Riau Province.

Poiman (60), a local villager, said the elephant`s corpse was found after somebody smelled something bad near the main road when entering a forest area managed by PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia (CPI), Wednesday at 5 am local time.

"We don`t know what had caused the elephant`s death. People just found a rotting corpse and covered it with leafs and branches. We did not want to approach it because it was very smelly and we worried that other elephants might come," Parmin said.

Another villager, Ardi (34), said that the dead elephant had lost its two tusks.

The local inhabitants suspected that the elephant had been killed by unknown people.

"Yesterday, we heard three gun shots," he said.

Brilian, another resident, said four elephants had been spotted in local people`s rubber plantations over the past week, preventing the people from tapping the gum.

"We have tried to drive them away by setting cannon and fireworks, but they are still roaming around our rubber plantations," he said.

Petanni Village Head Riyanto said it would be very difficult to check the cause of the elephant`s death because its corpse had already rotten and was full of worms and flies.

Riyanto had reported the dead elephant find to the local police and Bengkalis nature resource conservation office (BKSDA).

He also asked the local authorities to be responsive to local people`s complaints on the wild elephants entering rubber plantations.

Head of the Bengkalis BKSDA Hutomo said he would investigated the death of the elephant as it was a protected animal.

The Sumatran elephant is the smallest of the Asian elephants. They can live to be 60-70 years old and grow to body height of up to 1.70-2.6 m. at the shoulder.

They usually weigh between 6,615 and 11,020 pounds! Due to deforestation and destruction of habitat, the Sumatran elephants have become endangered.
