In recent years there has been an increasingly common trend of privileged people going off and illegally killing endangered animals and posting pictures up on social media to gloat. There is absolutely a reason to be offended at those photos, but this photo is absolutely not one of them. Unless you count a fake dinosaur among the endangered species list.

The picture was of Steven Spielberg on the set of Jurassic Park, and he has assured the public numerous times that no real dinosaurs were harmed in the making of his movies. Anyway, I think it would be hard to get our conservative Congress to extend conservation provisions far enough to cover species that no longer exist. TC mark
