After an alarming study released today by the Environmental Protection Agency found only one sample of him left outside of captivity, the US government acted quickly adding The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith to the country’s endangered animals list. In addition to special new protection from hunters and poachers, the government will soon embark on a program to encourage Smith to reproduce by surrounding him with eligible females of his own species.
