Other solutions to wildlife feeding
If I was hungry, or maybe even just curious… when you came into MY HOME, where I sleep, where I eat, where my family was raised – and to my home you brought a delicious smelling pot roast, and a scrumptious looking chocolate cake (I love chocolate), and if, acting on natural instinct because you are simply tantalizing… I follow you… should I be killed?
The recent killing of what was referred to as a “rogue wolf” is an example of just how out of balance we are with nature.
There are so many other options other than killing. Close the area. Spend more money on staff, educate the public and, for goodness sake, have some tolerance for natural order to take place.
There is much more to the story than the problem simply being that people may feed wild animals, therefore causing wild animals to become habituated, and therefore have to be killed. So long as this is the only part of the story we tell, we will continue to respond the same way.
But there is much more to the story. There are other models that could work for humans and wildlife co-habiting. If we open our minds and our hearts to that investigation, and are willing to compromise on all our perceived rights and enjoyment of the land we share, perhaps we will invite solutions that don’t result in killing the wildlife we cherish.
