The use of the word "killjoy" is very interesting. This monarch release
was not supposed to have been done for pleasure but for science.
My view is that it is wrong and was a publicity stunt. Many eminent
scientists are oposed to this kind of thing.
There are many people who enjoy helping in studying the monarch migration.
Their work is being ruinied. Their joy is being killed too.

Neil Jones- Neil at "The beauty and genius of a work of art
may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a
vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer; but when the last
individual of a race of living things breathes no more another heaven and
another earth must pass before such a one can be again." William Beebe
