Looks like you need some eagle-eating gorillas


/preferably the kind that freezes in the winter

I have hawks in my neighborhood, but they won't eat the damn
squirrels or the groundhogs.

What can you do to attract eagles?

It's obvious that animals don't care about the environment.

Well let's start shooting the eagles, then.

Wait, no.

This just in...animals have a tendency to eat one another. It's natural.

Humans aren't natural however, we're the out of control nosy interfering bastard freakshow megabrained bipedal mutants spreading over the planet in a superswarm.

Skinner: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards?
Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards.
Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse?
Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas!
Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.

if by "hippies" you mean "Environmentalists":

let it happen. predation is part of nature. We're only concerned when it is human recklessness that is causing the issue.

so the fox somehow manages to survive, and the eagle not. we save the eagle who then decides to go after the fox. both eventually die out. this cannot be a case of recklessness.

if it wasn't for environmentalists our national bird would be extinct throughout much of north america
if it wasn't for environmentalists we'd still routinely be talking about acid rain
if it wasn't for environmentalists you wouldn't have healthy populations of prey animals to hunt
if it wasn't for environmentalists you'd have chronic lung irritation from particulate pollution

and the list of things that environmentalists have done that improves your life could go on for the next four pages.

Obviously we need to start giving the endangered foxes little suits of armor to protect them. Maybe DDT laced armor?
 
2010-05-05 09:57:20 AM  
The display of scientific sophistication in this thread is enlightening. You must all have doctorates in ecology. "Animals eat other animals. It's nature!" This conversation is way over my head.
 
2010-05-05 09:59:58 AM  
1) Too many stray cats and dogs
2) Too many hungry eagles that might otherwise eat endangered animals

Sounds like some problems might just about solve themselves. I guess the hippies wouldn't say dig a pit, throw in some dog food and regularly ship in strays rather than putting them to sleep though.

actually "the hippies" would say get the invasive species (dogs and cats) the fark out of the environment

why the heck do you think we're all advocates of spay/neutering? Pets are fine, as long as they're pets, not feral invasive species.

/most of us have pets.

Kazan: //you think calling us hippies is going to be insulting? that's laughable


Just continuing the theme of the thread. I actually think the term is laughable as proven by South Park. I don't think environmentalist = hippie though, even in internet talk. There's an overlay of drugged out disbelief in reality that seems to attach to hippie. Environmentalist has more of an overtone of scientist.

Kazan: why the heck do you think we're all advocates of spay/neutering?


So am I. I actually almost put in a nod to Bob but it disrupted the point.

Think "A Modest Proposal"

/Hmm, If you lined the pit with concrete pet's wouldn't be invasive species because they'd be in their natural environment coontil eaten), right?

//Think "A Modest Proposal" again

Best eagle pics I have ever seen. Warning though, they are graphic, predatory animals and these pictures are showing them in their full gory.. er glory as such.

An addenda:

I am assuming no lawmaker is actually reading this and considers feeding puppies to raptors a good idea.

This Fark, the first part is probably a good assumption.

Don't try to tell me what I believe, I probably know what I believe better than you do.

Hint: what you said I believe and what I believe are different things

Oh, and by the way, the election was yesterday and you'll be happy to know the tax was voted down over three to one. So evidently I wasn't the only one who thought it was unfair. Traditionally school taxes pass here or when voted down only by a slim margin. That was a smackdown.

Up at the cabin, it usually involves finding a dead minnow in the bait bucket and tossing it over the side of the boat. Within 5 minutes, there'll be an eagle swooping down for a snack, even if it's within 10-15 feet of the boat.
 
2010-05-05 11:29:43 AM  
I guess hippies need to start smoking more eagles.

That's the tax I was complaining about in the thread a few weeks ago where I assume you tagged me with that awesome description.

Yeah that's what I said... hippies. You can paint stripes on a turd and call it a zebra turd if you want. Even with a new paint job and a fancy name, it's still a piece of shiat!

Seriously though, "environmentalists" claim it's people that endangered both groups in the first place, and now one's going to wipe out the other. These must be amazing yet trying times at the flower-kissing institute.

As somebody who cares deeply about the environment, I'll be thinning the local deer overpopulation this year.
