Q:You are so pretty but I wish you were a bit skinnier :/
humans exploit and kill cows and their babies in merciless ways to obtain cheese and other forms of dairy. so it’s your tastebuds, or their life- please choose wisely (x)
Also, EVERY one of those can be made vegan. So, you know, fuck off and stuff :)
When a significantly younger guy flirts with me:
I’m SO tired of these hunting overpopulation myths. Here’s what’s up: Pro-hunting babble usually comes from Game Commission personnel whose salaries depend on hunting and trapping license fees. The “good for the deer” pitch is really about increasing hunting and license revenues.
Is it really more humane to shoot 200 deer than let them linger in starvation? NO! HUNTING TRIGGERS HERD GROWTH. It’s simple science: When part of the animal population is removed, new animals migrate in, or the remaining population rebounds due to food abundance. The deer propagate and the population increases. Since hunters always want more deer to shoot, they kill bucks over does. Pregnant does left with an ample food supply tend to give birth to a higher ratio of fawns. With less bucks competing for territory, mating becomes the primary focus of the herd.
Natural selection maintains deer herd size. Starvation is an essential mechanism of natural selection. Without humans, guns, arrows or traps—the weak naturally die off and the strong survive.
Some wild areas preserved for hunting alter terrain to favor target animals. Manipulating nature to favor one species causes the endangerment or extinction of another. The 2 major causes of extinction are hunting and habitat destruction.
If hunting is “necessary” to control overpopulation and prevent “nuisance-animals,” why is this argument applied only to white-tailed deer? Most states deliberately boost deer populations to provide prey for hunters. State game agencies allow hunting to “manage” artificially stimulated “surplus animals.” There are no surpluses in nature. Ecology functions in natural cycles. White-tailed deer account for only 2% (6 million) of the 200 million animals killed yearly by hunters. 25% (50 million) are morning doves and 15% (30 million) are squirrels. Millions more are geese and ducks. In fact, wildlife managers restrict waterfowl killings so that species don’t become extinct.
Sport hunting does not exist to manage wildlife. Sport hunting exists as “enjoyable recreation.” Buck hunting #vegansofig
