God forgive us for our narrow-mindedness and blindness due to the fact that we cannot see the bigger picture.

If the animals and birds suffer because we temporarily destroyed their chance of survival in order to give future animals a better place to live in, please provide a special habitat for them, with lots of food and trees where they can live undisturbed in animal heaven.
