Animals are or can be smarter than most people give them credit for. And that's not "humanizing" them. I got stories.... And they feel loyalty, love, grief, joy, depression. They also figure out real quick where it is safe and where it is not for them to be.

Brings to mind a story my youngest brother tells from one of his college classes- probably psycology. The teacher asked the class to define the main difference between people and animals.

The "correct" answer was that people can reason, and animals can't. My brother (being a big mouth like myself) said," Wait a minute! I have a Golden Retriever that can reason better than half the people in this class". (That might have been true- Buford was amazing!)

Of course, that pissed off half the people in the class. The other half knew who Bob was referring to..... smile

yeah, I read the entire thread... and I still stand by the above statement... strictly a troll and contributes nothing to this site.

Mark Levin brought up this story on his radio show yesterday. He was very much anti-poacher and had sympathy for the elephants and rhinos who are being poached out of existence by Obongo's children.

I read SAC's reply differently, I saw it as a reply to Bellydeep, not to TLee.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

Seafart, Bellydeep is having a hard time with his assignment maybe you can show him how it's done and then both of you can smoke a cig and STFU.

You are either an optimist, or a masochist and it really doesn't matter which on these fora as the result is the same.

There was a great article from National Review earlier this week on the ramifications of a society humanizing animals relating to the gorilla shooting.
The MSM saw the success of this after the Cecil the Lion incident.
Last week it was "Scarface the Grizzly Killed By Hunter" until surprise, the bear surfaces with its cubs.

Here was the article.

Good post Ransome. Unfortunately, we've been told for months by the cognoscenti here at 24hour that National Review is a RINO, Neo-Con loser of a rag (since they oppose Trump) and therefore we can't trust a thing they write. crazy Sorry. blush Nice try though. grin FWIW, I like NR too. Lots of good, conservative analysis there. Unfortunately, conservatives aren't welcome here by a high percentage of the folks on this forum.

Yeah, some of us become "unwelcoming" when *your* version of a conservative includes Mitt Romney.

Apologies........

Thanks. NR does have some good pointed analysis as leaders of the #NeverTrump crowd though don't agree 100%...Between bad and worse I'll take bad given the number of SCOTUS vacancies. Their editor Rich Lowry did however have this insulting bit of presumptious piety regarding hunters and hunting"

"The question is what should the Cincinnati Zoo have done when forced to choose between the welfare of a prodigious animal and a small human?

This wasn't a case of a hunter who went out of his way at great expense and trouble to shoot a lion or some other glorious creature for the triumphant photo with the carcass and the trophy on the wall back home. This wasn't a poacher who killed for tawdry profit.

This wasn't a fly-by-night roadside attraction abusing the poor creatures in its clutches.

This was a serious, responsible institution confronted with a life-and-death crisis, in real time and not of its devising."

Full article was here via NR and Newsmax.
