Worcester’s buttonquail was a species of bird believed to be extinct. For a long, long time it had not been seen in the Philippines, and the bird had never been photographed.
That is until the damn bird was caught, photographed by National Geographic, a well-known terrorist organization.
However, this story has a happy ending. The bird was found by the “journalists” alive and well–on the poultry market. It was soon sold and eaten.
“What if this was the last of its species?” said Wild Bird Club of the Philippines President Michael Lu.
How fitting an end.
