Here is a story about killer squirrels. Maybe all of you animal activists can see what the hunters are doing for you. By regulating the population, it keeps things like this from happening. I bet if it was your cat or dog, you would be begging hunters to help resolve the situation. “But why do you want to hurt the little innocent squirrels? What did they do to you?” It is all about checks and balances so to speak. What comes in has to be in balance with what goes out. Hunters do this. Hunters regulate the population. But not only do we “thin the herd” so to speak, we also are conservationists. When a species has a low population, there are restrictions on how many and when if at all they can be taken. When a species becomes over populated, let’s say like snow geese, they open the limits to broader margins and allow more to be taken. You see, when there are an overabundance of snow geese, they destroy the farmer’s crops and also the natural habitat for the other animals. Checks and balances. Your welcome animal activists, no thanks needed. Later.
