And, I repeat what I said earlier, which is that if there are so many deer that they are getting out of hand (probably because hunters killed off all the natural predators), then why aren't the scientists trying to work out some sort of birth control to keep them from multiplying?


Humans do not need to eat deer.  We are not carnivorous animals, and we always have a choice.


 




On the first point, how are you going to distribute the contraceptive effectively, and who is going to pay for this hare-brained scheme?


On the second point, you are correct.  We are in fact omnivores, not carnivores.  There's plenty of space for broccoli next to the steak.

How about some current news about wolves?  Surprised


$2,500 reward offered in investigation of possible wolf kill in northeast Oregon

Authorities are now offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information that helps catch whoever killed a an animal believed to be a wolf found in mid-March in northeast Oregon.

The Humane Society of the United States and The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust are offering the reward.

Endangered wolf needs protection instead of bullets

For eons, gray wolves roamed the northern stretches of the United States. When Europeans settled here, they systematically hunted them down until the species was perilously close to extinction. Like the grizzly bear that adorns our state flag, gray wolves were erased from every corner of California.

In 1974, the gray wolf was added to the Endangered Species List. In 1995, the gray wolf was reintroduced to the western United States in an effort to give the animals a chance to live in their former habitats.

Since then, the gray wolf has made a remarkable comeback. Experts estimate that between 1,700 and 3,000 wolves now live in the western United States. They are beginning to thrive again.

But they still have a long way to go. Even if 3,000 wolves live in the entirety of the western states, they are a vanished species, struggling to survive in a world of cattle, sheep and horse ranches.

   I guess it is just too much fun to deride any and all substantive points that some of us make. 




As soon as you make one, I'll be sure to try that.  I'll let you know how much fun it turns out to be.

Surely there must be something in the TOS about characterizing other members as sociopaths, psychopaths, or whatever.

First, harldy news.


Secondly, horribly biased mis-information.


Third, and excuse my French, but when are these jackasses going to realize ... people live out here too!

In the real world, neither a reward offered by the humane society (PETA-light) nor an article in the opinion pages of the San Fransisco Chronicle really qualify as "news."  Interesting reading, though.

This topic has strayed so much from from OP I thought we might get back to discussing the wolves!
