Everything in its place

Somehow it has gotten to the point that we only care about animals that fit in a sandwich. The Mangalica pig, for example, was down to about 200, but farmers in Spain and Hungary have bred enough so that the richest among us can start eating them again. I am sure the pigs are tasty but so apparently is the much more endangered Giant Armadillo. I think it is fair to say, something has gone wrong when the lot of an entire species depends entirely on saavy restaurant marketing.
