Exactly!
When one species leaves, another will move in to replace the function it served. As much has happened throughout history.
Exactly!
The proof is in Yellowstone. The wolves were removed, then they were brought back.

Well it's true. One time he had a visitor and as he stood in the doorway bsing with this person, the dog slipped right through and got out. Luckily, I was there and was able to capture the dog before he ran out to the road.
That's why women are better at watching kids too. We can actually walk and chew gum at the same time. Men cannot focus on two things at once or they hyperventilate.

Yeah, sure, ya betcha. That's why most women voted for Obama ...
Some choice there, right?
As I recall the remarks made by American women leaving the polling places back when Bill Clinton was on the ballot, they (almost to a person) remarked that the reason they voted for him was because he was 'so handsome,' and talked up a good line.
Yeah: Women, for the most part, vote with their loins.

If ONLY because the so-called 'greens' demanded that that happen.
Are you familiar with the term 'watermelon politics?'

Im doing my share to remove coyotes & other varmits from my immediate environment. And the sale of the furbear,s is more than offsetting my cost. Win Win situation.

Good for you. I will do my share while deer hunting to get rid of varmints as well. They might not be worth much after I put a .44 caliber hole through their hides, but the buzzards will enjoy a fresh meal.

Funny you mention Communism. It's a pretty sad day when I have to agree with Pravda concerning the illiterate drones that I live next to in this country.
An illiterate society voted for Obama, for another four years of misery.

You might not take me at my word, but the matter of the 'vote' isn't to be taken as valid.
I say that for just this reason: The voting machines are OWNED by private entities payed to produce results.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I did not vote for Obama, nor did I vote for Clinton. I am a conservative. Even most republicans are too liberal for me. What the heck do you think is wrong with America today? Those running the show have ignored the Constitiution and we find ourselves on a path to what our founders wanted no part of.

It happened because biologists and wildlife officials, who are experts in the field, found things out of whack in that ecosystem with the lack of predators. Too many members of the Cervidae family were eating the low vegetation that the native birds and small mammals needed to survive. Once common, many of these animals were becoming very rare in the area that had much of the low vegetaion eaten.

Communism is when one small group of men think they rule the country and make all decisions regarding everything. Churmudgeon might call them a secret society. This would be the ranchers and hunters who want all competition removed for their own self-interest.

That Sir, is Communism.

Don't bitch when the rabbit population explodes and they start eating your crops.

Oh yeah, easy food will help their population explode too. Then you can bitch about too many Turkey and Black Vultures, as they are technically called.

"An illiterate society voted for Obama"
Wrong. An apathetic society didn't vote for anybody who would defend and uphold the Constitution, as they have done for 50 years or so. This includes both major candidates. Romney wouldn't have fixed all our problems.

TV was the best thing to happen to this country in the minds of our leaders. That is how they brainwash people into believeing what they want them to believe, or get people entertained to the point where they are out of touch with what's going on in their government.

There are so few wild cottontails that I quit raising beagle hounds to hunt them. I raise tame rabbitts just so I can have rabbitt meat whenever I want. There are so many hawks , owls, fox and feral housecats that a population explosion is very unlikely. Even if every coyote on the planet went extinct.

They didnt allow hunting in the park and the elk & buffalo herds became infected with Burcelliocis. The Mamby Pamby still didnt want hunters so they brought in wolves to kill the sickly animals. The wolves very soon killed off the easy prey sick animas in the park & then left the park in favor of the easy prey of domestic livestock.
