Do cows really eat fish? Do they eat fish eggs? I have personally replied (on behalf of clients) to multiple Draft Biological Opinions regarding two national forests where U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service biologists made these claims. They claimed that cows destroyed the nests (redds) of fish species that don't build nests, stepped on fish, and muddied the water of fish that spawn only in muddy water. They also designated dry washes as critical habitat for endangered species of fish.

Sorry to trouble everyone, but this is merely a reply to, not a ping list. I wondered if there is a meat/beef/omnivore ping list. Didn't see one on SeaMole's list:
Nature is reality. When bees steal from flowers they fertilize them. In the case of cows, they eat grass... and dung beetles feed off their excretions. Surely there is a similar relationship with the fish.
Oh man! You can't post a picture like that without an address. Thats cruel and inhumane ;)
Do cows eat kudzu?
I didn't see it in any federal pub -- not sure exactly where -- it may have been the Ashevile Mountain Express but I'm not certain -- I did not believe it though (the article implied that cows would prefer to eat kudzu -- I would believe they would eat kudzu if nothing else were available).
I found a reference to cows and hay at www://alabamatv.org/kudzu/.
The wife had some as a potted plant. It's not a desert dweller, it freezes or fries too easily.
It might be time to put in for a grant to study the effects of wastewater on the Santa Cruz native fish population.(Snicker)
If you have to ask, you have heart disease and you're dead already.
You know, there's a "special sauce" or "sesame seed bun" joke to be made here.
I, however, am way too sophisticated and genteel to stoop to such an easy laugh...
That's your sandwich, isn't it.
Thanks for the RANGE post...nice to see other FReepers read RANGE. Steven Rich is one of my favorite writers.
I don't, but someone I know from another forum does, and pointed me in that direction. :')
