    The extiction of the Carolina parkeet was due more to farmers than hunters. They were seen as a pest because a flock would totaly wipe out a farmers crop. Farmers would kill a single bird and the rest of the flock would come to that one birds aid. The farmers then killed the whole flock.

    I know, it seems so tragic to me that they wouldnt leave their flockmate. how touching. It reminds me of sailors on islands where the species were so tame that they were dispatched with the swing of a good stick or club right off their perches. It wasnt for sport on islands: they killed them because they could.
    that makes no logic

    it's tasmanian tiger! You've been thinking of me too much [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    and just to clarify, they're not tigers. They're marsupials related to tasmanian devils.
    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] They were not tigers nor wolves nor were they related to Tasmanian devils other than that were marsupials and carnivores. They were called tigers simply because of their stripes. Their skulls most resemble placental wolves, but they were marsupials and are still scientifically known as genus thylacinus and species cynocephalus, a genus all their own.
    I suppose they were called wolves only because of their similarity to canid (coyote or wolf). Their claws were not retractable, like the big cats, though.

    But they're extict, so yeah, you can still be the alpha wolf. LOL

    ahhhh the infomous market "hunters" these guys were in business to make money, they were not hunters. they were supplying meat to the big citys, they werent taking a few animals a year to help feed their families. the real hunters are who did a major help to put a major stop to that.

    on "tree huggers" and hunters getting along. the problem is most of the hunters are fairly grounded in reality, want to keep more out of the public eye and support their cause and the "tree hugger/green peace" types are interested in getting on TV, shouting to the world about their cause and directing very lil actual money to doing good with their cause. hunters open their wallet and checkbooks quite wide every year. the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Ducks Unlimited and other such organizations bring in tremendous money directly from hunters whit very lil fan fare and such so the vast majority of that money get put where it does the most good. you want a good example with bighorn sheep? North Dakota has a small but steady bighorn population in its weatern badlands. i think 8 permits are drawn every year for hunting them. 7 to residents and than they auction of a 8th permit to an "out of stater" this permit generally goes for around $100,000 IIRC all profit of this ticket goes directly to conservation efforts for the bighorns in ND. if someone was just interested in hunting bighorn sheep they could do it for a small fraction of that and have a better sucess rate by hunting the EXACT SAME subspecies in Colorado or Wyoming or Montana.

    hunters ingeneral put their money where there mouth is, if the "tree huggers" would come down to reality, do the same in putting money twords their cause and sit and have a beer with us over some nice juicy elk steaks i bet we would get along famously. yes our goal are one in the same for the most part. one section just isnt thinking as clearly from what i see

    A question asked of me once: How do you shoot those precious Bambi's??
    My answer: Right between the eyes.
    For some reason, she didn't want to talk to me anymore.

    I'm willing to bet she didn't contribute a thing towards humanitarian causes either.
