This is worrying. From the BBC:
Populations of some of the world’s largest wild animals are dwindling, raising the threat of an “empty landscape”, say scientists.
About 60% of giant herbivores – plant-eaters – including rhinos, elephants and gorillas, are at risk of extinction, according to research.
Analysis of 74 herbivore species, published in Science Advances, blamed poaching and habitat loss.
A previous study of large carnivores showed similar declines.
So meteorites aren’t the sole culprits. I guess the question is, how do Creationists rationalise this entire gamut of evidence…
Feline friend or feline fiend?
Cats are one of the top threats to US wildlife, killing billions of animals each year, a study suggests.
The authors estimate they are responsible for the deaths of between 1.4 and 3.7 billion birds and 6.9-20.7 billion mammals annually.
