Another Incident with Wild Animals

Wild animals are making the rounds as of late.  It started off with a man attacked by a bear, then another one got into get in a pissing contest with a Bison.  Then information came out about a coyote problem in Seattle.  Now we have an incident involving some of our tree-dwelling cousins.

 The chimpanzees dragged the man for more than a mile, under a fence and into their enclosure at Jane Goodall Institute Chimp Eden near Nelspruit, The Telegraph newspaper reported.

Armed escorts were required for the paramedics who went to treat and rescue the victim.  But they’re just smaller animals that couldn’t possibly be a danger to humans right?

“These chimpanzees have six times the strength of a human being so you have to respect them and we certainly do,” he said.

So if you still think that wild animals, no matter their size, don’t present a threat or danger to humans, remember that’s your choice and opinion.  Facts state that humans are not on the top of the food chain by PFM.  They are there because of their tools and without them they are nothing but walking meat popsicle. If you choose to go into the wild unarmed, or even around suburbia, that is your choice and you can live with the consequences of your choice.  You have no right to force your moral choices though on anyone else.

I know, I know. You’re sitting at home and you’re scratching your head and you’re saying why in this age of enlightenment is it still necessary to blast these beautiful creatures out of the sky and the answer is simple. Responsible hunting has always been a part of responsible conservation. Plus they taste really good. – Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs (Collection 5 Episode 2 Goose Down Plucker)

Hunters are the biggest contributors to conservation, yet the Liberals think hunting and the tools used are a bad thing.

As Barron put it, Mike Rowe actually got something out of his Eagle Scout unlike Michael Bloomberg.
