- The impact of predators is minute compared to the
impact of humans<<<< As a generalization,
that is true, but should be qualified to include the
non-hunting, non ARA population.<br><br>It is humans that
despoil the earth and who cannot control their numbers.

this is true.<br><br>here in England the wild rabbits
get out of control because chemicals kill the birds

WILL determine what types of controls are utilized.
Lately, PeTA has been championing the prairie dog as the
"Bambi for the New Millenium." However, if sport hunting
is eliminated as PeTA wishes, farmers and ranchers
will have no choice but to poison the prairie dogs to
extiction before the hunting bans go into effect. This will
certianly affect populations of raptors, and feral canines
(ie, coyote and fox). Would you risk another DDT type
of scenario to save 100,000 prairie dogs, or would
your rather risk 150,000,000 prairie dogs, hawks,
eagles and coyotes?<br><br>The Great Longbowlio has

their full upright position and extinguish all smoking
- Hi Colleen,
> Am I still basically considered a meat eater even though Irarely eat meat? I eat more chicken and turkey then red meat. Colleen
Technically yes. I don't really care myself. You'll never catch me
jumping you for eating, period! But since Praf's opinion is that
anyone of us could in theory be a cow, or chx, or turk then yes, you
are still a murdering flesh eater!
