    it touches a cord with me because the hats were a personnal gift form canada to the Royalty of britain , you just can't say fur is fur synthetic or not , and the real fur is part of the gift , it's not hurting anybody , so leave it alone , and what do the activists gain from this ????

    Publicity. A PR victory.
    And the realisation amongst rational people who actually look at all the facts that the activists tend to engage their activities before their brains. :grin:

    And how do these organizations damage the environment they claim to protect?

    One reason is the fact the culls and the such are needed and they oppose that, often with bogus science

    Killing off unwanted animals (e.g. baby seals :p) to keep the numbers down

    I don't see why we humans have to shoot animals to "keep the numbers down". The natural predators do a good enough job, so I don't see how PETA is incorrect on this point (unless we've been wiping out the predators).

    Well, PETA had a right-side brain lobotomy

    Umm, no natural predators dont do a good enough job, or there are a lack thereof

    since the beginning of time and up until about 200 years ago ,there were in america and europe these long legged packs of large dog -like creatures called wolves .wolves were quite common and were helpful in keeping populations of deer ,elk ,moose and peasants in check .

    nowadays in the usa , we have hunting seasons to cull deer populations and tornados and floods to destroy trailer parks . the message of machisimo , thuggery and instant retaliation preached by rap artists helps to keep the inner cities from being over run by young black men .

    here in nor cali ,mountain lions are on a comeback after being an endangered speices for 30 years .ironically these mountain lions often prey on young female joggers in the hills above santa barbara and malibu , thereby helping to keep the numbers of peta members in check .

    Someone has done their research. Many more Petards (Retardus petardus) cluster in high density areas making them invulnerable to culls and predators, however populations of papparazzi cause constant annoyance, but do little or nothing to population volume. Rather they are a pest.

    Just to elaborate on the good points about "culling" you have made...

    The fur industry for example.
    Once it became "politically incorrect" to wear fur, the numbers of these varmints began to increase exponentially. I can't tell you the numbers of possums, and racoons that are mashed-flat on the nations' highways year-after-year. Whitetail deer cause millions of dollars of damage to vehicles each year... and fatalities as well. Muskrats love to burrow into a dike, or dam and can weaken it to the point of structural failure.

    I can't help but laugh at rich folk that buy land and build a mansion in the country... then bitch about the wildlife that they see trying to get into their houses. (People without a clue.)
    I saw a picture taken in Iowa through a sliding back-door of a fellow's house. It was of a mountain-lion peering in the window with teeth-bared.

    Years ago, my dad used to trap to supplement his income. Muskrats mostly and the occasional mink. Wild mink were worth big bucks back in the day. He used to take the carcasses of muskrats to a black family, who eagerly took them and they were eaten.

    I've eaten a fried muskrat. Always look for a young one, they tough as they get older... just like a fox squirrel. It's protein fellows, and will keep you from starving. I've also had bar-b-que beaver, and it was as tasty as beef or pork. (No lie junior!)

    Only in a sophisticated society like the USA can todays' vegetarians exist and multiply. If our Golden Civilization crumbled into dust tomorrow, these vegans and PETA freaks would begin to salivate over the neighbors' cat after a couple weeks. Adapt and survvive... or DIE. Most of these people have never known "hard-times." You don't eat fish? Good. 'Just means there's more for me and MY family.

    Really? If we're lacking natural predators then that just means we've been overhunting and we need to start bringing back our wolves, cougars and the like.

    Some animals may taste good and perhaps are even healthy to eat, and some animals may screw up dams and crash into vehicles, but on the other hand we shouldn't exterminate them completly.

    Blaster;
    ... and I've never suggested extermination of any species... 'cept maybe cockroaches.

    The fact that mountain-lions are emboldened to the point of plucking a "yuppie-jogger off a mountain-trail in California for dinner... indicates to me that they have lost their basic instilled fear of man. Back when there was a hunting season on these big predators, they were very shy and avoided human contact at all-costs.

    In Indiana, we manage our statewide population of Whitetails through the framework of a fall hunting-season. Insurance companies appreciate the fact that claims for deer-collision claims go down, and the meat goes to feed the hunters' family and sometimes the poor. While I do not hunt whitetail deer, I respect and defend those hunters that do, as I hope they support my taking of ducks and geese.

    We have burgeoning flocks of giant-canada geese here in my state, and they are now percieved as a nusiance species in big cities, and around lakes and recreation-areas. The geese have not only found a way to to survive, but to flourish in proximity to humans and metroplitan areas. People object to all that goose-poop laying aroudn everywhere, and the fact they are very aggressive when on the nest. What is the most cost-effective tool to manage the explosive growth of these flocks? Why, hunting of course.

    The question has always been one of balance, not eradication.

    An acre of land can only support so many deer, possums, racoons, etc. IF they are not controlled through hunting, or trapping, then "Mother Nature" steps-in and does the dirty job through starvation and disease. Not so unlike the famines and disease... or the many WARS mankind has faced over time now that I think of it...

    I passionately support the continued preservation of the lives of our animal friends... We in Australia eat the animals on our own coat of arms, and it is DISGUSTING....

    ... to some people anyway, kangaroo meat really is delicious! Like tough steak.

    Cows, Pigs, and Chikin's in particular we should endevour to protect
    If they became extinct, what would we eat? :D

    The problem we have is that man has un-balanced the equation. We have eliminated or greatly reduced predators, and also eliminated or greatly reduced the environments many animals live in. The only thing we can do is help to maintain the balance, and the kindest way to do that is the cull.

    If we leave it alone, many species would die out or at least face mass death via starvation. Re-introducing predators is not really an option - I for one would not support the re-introduction of bears and wolves to the UK.
