shybuffguy saidYou can be disgusted all you want, but culling the herds is necessary to maintain healthy herds.
But if that might only be true within given parameters of having limited herds to restricted ranges--even as seemingly required by human population growth because we refuse to regulate ourselves--then is it admirable to exalt culling as nationally televised entertainment?
What percentage of NBC profits went towards conservation?
And for all those meat eaters out there, be sure to tune in next Saturday when we'll be featuring in depth views of meat slaughterhouses nationwide. The family fun begins at 7 central time. (all commercial profits go to supporting your local pet shelters)
Really? If you don't want to watch it, turn it off.
The reality is, I live in the Mtns. of the west on 2000 acres and, even with culling we see some extensive die off of Elk, deer, Moose and Antelope herds in heavy snow winters. I doubt that those of you living in the city have a clue about how much land it takes to support an elk herd or a wolf pack.
As one of those people in that chain that produces the food you eat (I'm assuming you're a vegetarian), are you aware of how many deer and rabbits are killed to produce the vegetables for your table? Are you really so naive as to think that in order to produce the vegitables and fruits that you eat, there are no animals killed? Do you have any idea of how attractive a bed of lettuce is to deer and rabits? Do you really think that a farmer who depends on his crop for a living can afford to feed all of the deer and rabbits in the neighborhod?
As far as pet shelters, maybe you're aren't aware that they are money making rackets. Ever wonder why, with so much money being donated to them each year they kill as many as 90% of the animals they take in? Ever wonder what happens to all those animals they kill at the shelters, you don't need to check much further than your pet food shelf at the supermarket.
Lecture me, when you have an idea of what you're lecturing me about.
