Oklahoma's governor should be processed and exported to the moon. And you, Rockhead, might want to be part of the shipment.

Yea, so far into the future that even God doesn't know the date.

I never told Him the date. He might not give us humans time to repent.

This is far more humane than what the horses now face. Horses are shipped to Mexico from all over the U.S. Why not process them here and ensure they aren't mistreated.

Now if they would lift the limit on deer for a few seaons we could get them under control. Over-population and shrinking food supply are pushing them into town and traffic.

Like feral hogs in Texas... We have a 24-7-365 season on porkers. Spears, bows, guns, even knives and hatchets are legal and there is no limit.

If they can, they should. If they are as poorly treated as many think, why haven't the put this logically awesome plan (for them)into action?

We're going to be in the same shape and overrun with whitetail if they open it for a while. These anti-hunting nuts aren't looking at the big picture. Wildlife has to be controlled as well as protected. Thin them out!

It's not the rocks in the USA, it's the rocks in your head. To catch up to you, the non-humans would have to go backwards.

So rather than conversing, you believe it is better to attack people. How mature of you.

Back to the question. If killing all of the humans is such a "win" for the "animals," why haven't they done it yet? According to your "logic," it seems like a terrific move for them.
