Some great posts from Demarcated Landscapes

Related to the second story above is an interesting one I heard today.

A  friend of mine reported to a livestock operator family that their heifer was stuck in a cattle guard. Their sympathetic response, “I guess we’ll have hamburger tonight.”

One anecdote doesn’t prove a point, but it illustrates my point.

To those people who try to tug on folk’s heartstrings that the “brutal” wolf that ate their calf or cow, everyone knows you don’t raise cattle because you want some dewy-eyed pets around. You would do well to take your livestock to slaughter and watch and help kill them like they do in other cultures — ethically instructive. Are you better or worse than the wolf? Or maybe the question is not even relevant?

Story: “Montanans, wildlife groups condemn state, feds for wolf pack slaughter.” Missoulian.

The coalition (Wildlife Watchers and Big Wildlife) issuing this statement also said the action left many questions unanswered and that the public must be given specific formation about the killing of so many wolves.
