Misunderstood animals rant [Oct. 9th, 2003|05:11 pm]

*Rant begins now*
Animals are so misunderstood. There was a cougar sighted a while back on the Gavilan College trails, and that was around the same time that the partly-eaten remains of a deer were found on the steps of the gym. The school handled it remarkably well for a school, and put flyers out telling how to walk away safely from an encounter, just as a precaution. That's how the situation should be handled, in my opinion.
I read them, and they didn't say anything about a "bloodthirsty beast" stalking people and wreaking havoc. Unlike the article my counselor recommended I read. She's a great counselor and has helped me through a lot, but this definitely wasn't the right article to recommend to me!
Anyway, sometimes peoples' views couldn't be farther from the truth. Mountain lions and other big predators are slowly losing these bad reputations though, which is good. Anyway...
*End of rant*

Besides that the session went really well.
And Minuet's sneezing problem has gotten better, which was good because I was worried about her.
Well, not much to talk about, as you all can probably tell. Maybe I'll take some pictures--I just need to decide who/what to take them of.

I quite agree. I think that humans are the most bloodthirsty of the species', myself. You don't see animals killing for sport or warring on other animals just for the fun of it.

Thanks--very true!
And that brings up a quote I read in a magazine--"For every human killed by a shark, ten million sharks are killed by humans". If that's not warring on other species, I don't know what is.
