All animals are greedy. If tigers had their way, they'd be hunting us to extinction.

If the last tiger was on my plate, I'd eat it, and I wouldn't be a bit remorseful. I might even yell, "HA! Not so grrrreat, now. Eh, Tony?"

Species were dying out long before mankind got here. They will continue to die out long after we're gone. It doesn't really make a difference, as long as it isn't mine.

Well, yes and no. The above statement is true, but it ignores the fact that humans have a bigger effect on *changing* their environment than any other species and, more importantly, that overall humans take way more than they give back. And way more than they need. Others species don't hoard like that, or waste like humans do.

Harkening back to the above example, if a tiger is hungry it goes and kills something and eats it. Humans, to get their food, kill not only what they eat, but cause all kinds of collateral damage. Farms drive all kinds of other animals away from their homes and eliminate their food. Harvesting crops kills burrowing animals. etc. etc.
