You gotta read the whole thing. The level of eco-colonial arrogance and disregard for the safety of the local people on the part of these Nature Conservancy clowns is off the hook.
Their ancient custom is never to harm the dragons but if the current course of action holds that is almost certain to change.
Didn't know there was a difference.
Yep, that's what I tell my kids ... don't crouch like a prey species in dragon habitat, especially if the dragons haven't had any goats or deer parts lately.
The boy “shouldn’t have crouched like a prey species in a place where dragons live,” says Marcus Matthews-Sawyer, tourism, marketing and communications director at Putri Naga Komodo. “You’ve got to be very careful about extrapolating and drawing any conclusions.”
Wait, isn’t that what you just did?
Oh they will probably declare the lizards an endangered animal, declare their area a wilderness zone, and move all the people out to public housing.
the Komodo Dragon is the leftist mascot.
” One of the most famous lizard attacks occurred half a world away in 2001, when a Komodo dragon kept by the Los Angeles Zoo tried to ingest the foot of Phil Bronstein, then editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and husband of actress Sharon Stone.”
To paraphrase Sharon - I guess that is just Karma, for being a San Francisco cafe-radical-leftist. Real life tries to take your foot off!
Komodos don’t seem to get bacterial infections. Consequently, scientists are studying komodo dragons to hopefully find the new antibiotics.
There is no such thing as a ‘good’ Komodo Dragon (Monitor Lizard)
there have been a few isolated reports of the Australian version (Goana Lizard) sighted of 14 to 16 feet+ in length.
Put locals on one island, and environmentalists on another. See who survives.
Wait until they figure out the whole global warming scam...that's when the shit will hit the fan. The liberals think we're hated now, that's nothing compared to what's inevitably coming...
Gee, I never heard of that happening before... Until Rachel WhatsHerName and the enviros got DDT completely banned, some headway was being made against malaria. Today, because western nations will place sanctions on any country that uses DDT in even limited areas, more than 1,000,000 people a year die of malaria. Their response? Send mosquito netting so people don't get bitten at night while asleep. But what about the other 18 or so hours in the day?
Well, at least those millions of people who've died of a horrible, preventable disease, all died for a good cause, right?
