Know your enemies. Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is a name to remember. IIRC, the head of PCRM is married to the head of PETA, Ingrid Newkirk. I must confess that I don't care for trapping. It reminds me of landmines. As an issue in the media, it's a looser.

These are the people who need to have a bear or cougar on their front porch while the kids are in the backyard. That is a mind changer par excellance.

Sport hunting of any kind should be banned there is no reason for it none...

Some animals that are for eating should be put down very humanely, and animal research is not needed for the most part but if it is it should not have the animal suffering.

Animals for coats and shoes are barbaric there are plenty of beautiful synthetic or wool coasts Mink is just a status symbol.

Fishing for fish well that is hard, I guess fishing is okay but not Marlin, Dolphin, Whale, Seal.

Shooting birds when there flying in the air also should be banned no need for it...

I take it you've never had a beaver chew down the shade trees around your pond.

As I consider what you have written, I hope you remember this post the next time you hit a deer.

A couple of years ago there was a soccor tournament. A family from out of town was traveling between events. They hit a deer on the bypass around town. It went through the windshield, killed the driver (Dad), and the head came off and landed on the kids in the back seat. We could have used a hunter that day.

Why can't you just catch them and move them somewhere else, and you are right no Beavers in San Diego but if I had any I would put them in a place where they could build there dams they serve a purpose in life...

These are the "doctors" who testify against the Adkins Diet. Real reason, the Adkins Diet is high in animal protein.

Why are you against trapping?

I said it reminds me of landmines. A friend of mine lost his leg in Viet-Nam by one, and we used them plenty in automatic(mechanical) ambushes. Now in Iraq we have improvized explosive devices(IED) taking plenty of our casualties. This is not stand up fighting or killing food to eat. When the media gets on it, it's a looser, forget about the economics.

No that is a horrible tragic story, but animals killing people are far less than people killing people in vehicular accidents,Animals are being driven out of there homes by human beings, what are they to do? If we have to many in the wild than Catch him move them where they can roam free or last result euthanize them so they will not suffer.

Because that would cause an imbalance, you will cause overcrowding in other areas and eventually they will be right back to the pond they were moved from.

Have you ever been to the country for anything more than a drive on a nice day?

WRONG - people enjoy it, and it keeps the numbers down. Way too many deer around today, We need to kill more of them - lots more.

Shooting birds when there flying in the air also should be banned no need for it...

Mmmm tasty pheasant and quail. You can keep the ducks and geese as long as other people kill enough of them to keep the populations at a reasonable level.

Can't stand to have too many animals running around eating gardens, craping all over the place yeetch.

You are NUTS!

BTW, do you eat chicken? They must be killed before they are sent to your local grocery. I hope you aren't chowing down on them.

I'm guessing her whole interaction with actual wildlife comes from zoos, television, and disney movies.

I think the Michael Crichton piece on environmental activists might need to be posted again...

Yep ~ beaver dams do serve a purpose: they get rid of lotsa trees, make lakes and make it easier to trap beavers so you use their hides for many neat things. :)

From people that are ex-hunters and tell me the real deal of hunting as well as visiting animal sancutarys and seeing how animals have value without being hunted for no reason.

Out here in Ca I am sure you heard about the cougar attacks on the bicyclists, they killed the cougar which they had to do AGREED but now they want to go and kill all of them in that area, we have had lots of fires that have killed alot of the prey cougars eat, so now they are going to kill the cougars WHY cause that is the easiest.

I see in my area cyotoes that are hit by cars all over yes they are a nuisance so you need to move them around not leave them running in the street so you can run them over.

If I had the time I put cages out catch them and proably have then euthanized humanely.

Arguements based on opinion are as useless as a beaver trap in San Diego.

Would you care to elaborate on who, what and why has determined 'there is no reason for it none'?

Incidentally, I suppose you think that poor poor puddy cat that ate the biker should have been spared?

Thank God neither you or I have unilateral power to decide what constitutes a "need" for our fellow man.

I see you're from California.

I would guess that you've never lived on a farm or ranch.

Or eaten an animal you've personally killed and dressed.

Are you a vegetarian?

Do you wear leather shoes or belts?

What is so enjoyable about killing an animal?

Of course an animal that is a problem should be put down and deers serve a purpose for other animals in the wild.

I am told that Bear attacks and other animal attacks on humans is because there is not enough animals for them to eat? why is that?

"From people that are ex-hunters and tell me the real deal of hunting as well as visiting animal sancutarys and seeing how animals have value without being hunted for no reason."

I am so very glad to see that you have thoroughly researched both sides of the issue! What does the bible say about animals and the role they play for us humans?

"I am told that Bear attacks and other animal attacks on humans is because there is not enough animals for them to eat? why is that?"

Because any particular species will only stop growth when the food source fails to support that species. Humans would make for a very nice food source to bears and cougars. Unless we keep their species balanced they will try to grow into our living areas.

You really need to use the organ that you have been blessed with, the one above the neck!

,,, "probably"? As in drink a herbal tea while you're deciding? You'd put a wild animal thru that sort of trauma? Your understanding of them leaves a lot to be desired before you can cloak yourself with the 2004 Humane mantle. Hey, we'll call you when the judging panel's got it going on! One quick shot from a rifle and it's curtains with no holding time in a cage.

No I never lived on a ranch and of course I have leather what I am trying to say is that hunting for sport serves what purpose? is it like a game of golf? going to a horse race? What purposes does having heads of Deers, Bears, Cougars and Marlins on your wall other than vanity I am sure this is a "Guy" thing but it is a sport that most can live without...

Just because you say it's so, doesn't mean that it's so. Doesn't the Bible say that man was given dominion over animals? Of course, there should be anti-cruelty measures, but many people make their living from animals.

Ever hear of father son bonding? Or would you prefer that your children never really bond with their father? If you have never hunted with your dad, then you have no idea of the bond that can occur while hunting or fishing!
