    extreme animal rights folks are horrible stewards ... they all too often let their emotions get in the way of time tested and proven conservation methods.
    they don't understand that banning hunting has a similar effect as overhunting... in the end, the species suffers without population management.

    we call animal rights nut cases "Bambists" because they think Bambi was a documentary., Many of them have stilted interpersonal relationships so they create a fantasy world in their own minds where animals are given idealic human personalities and are elevated to a status, in the minds of the Bambists, above real humans. since their entire concept of how animals live-and more importantly-die, is fantasy, their suggestions are mythologically based idiocy. They aren't anti hunting based on any rational environmental understanding but because they see hunting as "murdering" ideal beings that they pretend to identify with

    that sort of attitude is common among the Bambists. Many of them are self-loathing and most certainly hate humans: especially humans who don't buy into the cult of Bambi or "My little Pony" paradigms of alter-reality

    Well because it isn't about the money it's about culling sterile males.

    Nature makes it a point to have the Elderly teach the young, usually the best. Humans interferred. This old rhino clearly had more to teach if he was a stalling the breeding. And now every rhino this old rhino could have taught (aggression, defense, combat, winning, tenacity, virulence) is lost because some human thought he had a good idea.
    Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
