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.

Forest Ranger ‘Tarzan’ Seriously Injured by Komodo’s Bite

Denpasar. A forest ranger suffered serious injuries after being attacked by a komodo dragon in East Nusa Tenggara on Sunday.

Tarzan, a 47-year-old forest ranger, was feeding deer in Jagawana Loh Baru Post, in the southern part of Rinca island, Komodo National Park, when a medium-sized male komodo suddenly bit him on his left leg. Tarzan tripped and tried to break free by hitting the animal’s leg with the bucket he was using to feed the deer.

“The vein on his left leg was severed, and he needed surgery,” Tarzan’s wife, Siti Nur, told Jakarta Globe on Monday from Sanglah regional hospital, Denpasar, Bali, where Tarzan is being treated.

Siti said the komodo bit Tarzan and wouldn’t let go for at least five minutes. After breaking free from the komodo, Tarzan sought help. She said Tarzan was bleeding profusely from the gaping wound on his leg.

Tarzan was first taken to a health clinic in Labuan Bajo by a speedboat, but he was then immediately brought to a hospital in Bali because of the severe wound.

“We only gave him an antibiotic injection and performed a suture on his wound to stop the bleeding,” said Kelana, the health worker at Labuan Bajo who administered first aid to Tarzan.

Siti said Tarzan has been working as a forest ranger at Komodo National Park for 27 years and has never experienced such an incident.

“He did this kind of work every single day, but this thing has never happened to him,” she said.

Sanglah’s hospital spokesman, Kadek Nariyanta, said the doctors have performed a surgery to reconnect the severed tendon and vein.

“Right now the patient is recuperating in our hospital,” she said.

A bite from a komodo can be deadly if left untreated because of bacteria from the reptile’s saliva.
