Let the Pandas Go Extinct
1. They're really cute.
Oh look at that, I can only think of one. If it weren't for that one, then pandas would no longer exist.
If a panda looked more like this wart hog here, I can assure you that there would be very little effort invested in preserving its species.
Furthermore, the panda despises its own species. The men and women don't hang out, and have little interest in spending any time together. Which means they have no interest in procreating, and really little ability: females are only fertile for a couple of days a year. So to get these lazy critters to reproduce, zookeepers spend all kinds of money trying to get them interested or have to do it artificially. Millions of dollars are spent trying to preserve these lazy ner-do wells and slack-abouts. I say let them go extinct. Spend the money on a deserving species.
