I know that one day I would visit their website and see the stupidity shine through.
"What Do You Suppose the Elk Think of Us; By Heather Steel
It’s a striking and self-serving concept that elk in their increasing numbers are a nuisance. Couldn’t the elk say the same about us?Certainly so why don't members or FoA just leave this planet?
Canadians should be concerned about expanding our own population, and how that affects the indigenous animals. Certainly, no one is suggesting imposed birth control for the residents or tourists in Banff.
Well Humans are the only species I know of that has developed birth control and can limit their offspring. So maybe FoA should go out and talk them Elk, and tell them the errors of their way. Why does even more human population assume that this will affect indigenous animals? Humans also have the ability to adapt to a wide variety of ecosystems. Unless you assume that everyone needs their own Ecopsychologist.
…While it is laudable that park officials have sought to avoid killing elk in order to curb the population, forced birth control is another form of human hegemony over other animals.Yes Bears need more meat in their diet. Let's see how long you survive under their hegemony. Of course for FoA their is no solution until humans die off, well I wish they would help their perceived problems by first sacrificing their hegemony and "Will to Power".
Free-living animals do not require our guardianship, nor should it be imposed upon them.Well if we don't then are you willing to accept their imposition on yourself. If you think "free-living animals" also do not have the "will to power" then you need to read your evolutionary books some more. Yes their natural birth control is more death caused by increases in predator populations and starvations and diseases. Nice concern for nature, I would say.
Elk have their own natural birth control — they simply cannot expand much beyond the available food sources.
Whenever humans meddle with nature, we end up creating some kind of mess further down the line. Let’s consider more deeply the ethics and the consequences of this act before signing the elk up for family planning.Yes sir, thought about it. No birth control for them elk and we allow hunters to thin their population with those big bad guns. Sounds good to me.
