Lions and Wolves

Interesting article below on Botswana lions. When you’ve read it, consider that wolves are just like these lions without the redeeming social and economic values to those living with them.

When the radicals, like those doing their war dance last weekend at Yellowstone National Park (“Speak for Wolves”), and their agenda:

– End grazing on all federal public lands.

– Ban trapping/snaring on all federal public lands.

– Reform how state fish and game agencies operate.

– Abolish the predator-control department of USDA Wildlife Services.

– Introduce legislation to protect all predators, including wolves, from sport hunting, trapping, and snaring.

get their wishes to ban all these things and solely rely on state and federal law enforcement – THE RESULT WILL EVENTUALLY BE JUST WHAT THESE BOTSWANA LIONS EXPERIENCED, not to mention the social upheaval that it will surely generate.

At first, there will be grumbling about ranch closures, loss of hunting et al, and further rural decay and then the attacks and diseases from unmanaged animals will begin across the settled landscapes of the Lower 48 States.. Either rural Americans will move to the cities as described in The Grapes of Wrath OR they will start doing exactly what these Botswanans did. At first animals will be killed however (poisons, shooting, set guns, HOWEVER and there are many “howevers”.) Then the over-equipped, over-trained enforcers and their bureaucrats overseers and the court will “make examples” of a few and the result will be just what Drone Deaths do for Moslem terrorists. That is to say increase their numbers and ardor.

When that stage begins, it will dawn on more and more propagandized urban folks and public school munchkins as they grow up that a nasty war over animals with NO REDEEMING SOCIAL OR ECONOMIC VALUE is insanity but by then, more than a few will be maimed, wounded and dead from both unmanaged animal attacks, diseases and human confrontations.

Progressives and radicals can no more change the lessons of human history concerning living with wild animals by denying those lessons than they can make absurd notions – like an unborn child is not “a human life” or that any nation can assure its’ “future” (other than by massive immigration that changes it unalterably) when more and more people forego marriage and childbearing, and treat sex as recreation – “fool all of the people all of the time.”

Botswana as an example for the USA! Who’d have ever “thunk?”
