Not unless she has enough money to make it worthwhile.

FTFA: Several of the usually shy bears charged toward wildlife officers who offered them doughnuts.

There's a combination Homer Tax/Bear Patrol/Doughnut joke somewhere in there, but I can't find it.

The problem with most Environmentalists is they do not see humans as a part of nature. They see us as outsiders much like religious people do.

You said it man. You said it all. That sums up most environmentalist wackos perfectly. The human animal is always last on their list of things to care about. It's reckless, shortsighted, inhumane, and hypocritical.

Dear animal lovers

www.cats.org.uk
This is a kitty.  They're twitchy and none too bright but it's safe to feed them.
If they don't to be petted, they will usually retreat from somebody trying to
touch them.  They are largely harmless.

a-z-animals.com
This is a doggie.  Many are friendly, especially strays but some are twitchy
due to abuse or distemper.  You can usually safely feed them by setting out
some dog food and water.  Some may let you pet them.  Use caution.

www.adfg.alaska.gov
This is a black bear.  It is a merciless omnivore and can and will lay open
your guts into a pool of flesh, blood, fat and entrails.  Upon which it will
feast.  If they are fed in any area, they tend to remain in that area and
anything moving, or not, especially tasty humans and pets, are a meal.
And it will happily yank you open like a can of tuna if it's hungry.

No,like you, he's Imagining something and then being mad about it.

It's lazy and stupid and wrong. But nah, really, DDT is good for you, mercury in the fish you eat is just more tasty goodness, rivers on fire are fine, gasoline in your drinking water won't hurt you, and the sooner we pave the whole planet the better off we'll be.

I saw a bear in Boulder once in early fall. This was in town, but the bear moved down to eat garbage to gain weight for the winter. We were walking up the street and I said "that's a huge dog" and then, "HOLY FARK THAT'S A BEAR". We were about 20 yards away from it but immediately ducked into the nearest alcove and proceeded to wait. It moved on, but it was pretty terrifying.

Some dumbass tourists were there too and just stood on the sidewalk and whispered to each other about how majestic it was and took photos. Morans.

I called animal control and they oh-so-casually said, "we'll send someone out." Just one guy. Happens a lot up there it seems.

Bears, serious bidness.

StainedGlassRuby: Seriously?  People need to be told not to feed BEARS?


Well its Florida - and tree huggers, they seem to not understand that these bears are menace - let alone being dangerous. Tree huggers have no concept of this because they are like religious people - dim view of what's actually "realty". I am not blaming the entire group, hipster/tree hugger whatever, I know my share of Vegans and Tree Huggers - I respect them and they respect me. When we BBQ I put their "tofu burgers" on Aluminum foil and cook it on my grill, I put my Beef burgers on the other side on the foil as well.

We've had a chat once in a while about it, no biggie - however I ran into my share of tin foils as well, you simply learn to ignore them because eventually they are going to go full darwin by feeding bears.

Yes. This one moran is absolutely indicative of environmentalists and animal rights advocates everywhere. Well done.Also: "tree hugging?" I didn't even realize that stupid people still said that.

Didn't say all...said most.
And it quite funny to me that when this point is ever brought up, fire and brimstone reigns down on the messager. MOST believe it and they are "ashamed" of being a human.
But here is the kicker.
I'm the guy designing the systems that will end all dependency on fossil fuels (for both energy and plastics).
I am doing it not because I think humans are "incompatible" with Earths biosphere but rather we are Earth's best (and only) species that can protect it for the future.

mr lawson: The problem with most Environmentalists is they do not see humans as a part of nature. They see us as outsiders much like religious people do.


I'm an environmentalist, and this could not be closer to the truth.  Most environmentalists are of a "nature first" policy.  Now I agree that humans in general have adopted a "fark nature" policy, and we need to balance that out so we don't lose our back yard to pollution, but I do it for the humans - I want my fellow humans to be able to live in a green, clean world, I don't do it because of the poor farking animals.  I will help animals that are being unfairly treated or abused or whose homes and habitats are destroyed for no good reason - but I won't put that animal's priorities over my fellow humans.

Sometimes I just know whats better for most humans - Oh, you'll lose your job if they don't build an oil pipeline?  You'll lose your beautiful country if they do.

A valid criticism. But you have to admit, the problem with many non-environmentalists is the same. The only difference is that they see the *animals* as the outsiders.

moeburn: Now I agree that humans in general have adopted a "fark nature" policy,


No, most humans have not adopted a policy in any sense of the word.  They use what's available, they came into a world with electricity, internal combustion and heating systems.  They use what they need to use, or can afford to use, because "that's the way sh*t works" as far as they're concerned.  It's always been here.  A small group of very wealthy human beings are happily dismantling what's left of the ecology to provide them with all the magic doodads they are accustomed to having, but by and large, your average schmendrick has the same "nature policy" as a bag of chips.

The audio that Herzog was saying to throw away is on Youtube. Whether it's the real deal is kinda dubious, but at least sounds real and sounds like him and her.

Feeding wild animals is like giving welfare to humans.
They become lazy and dependent then are unable or unwilling to fend for themselves.
 
2014-06-21 03:06:02 PM
The combination of urbanization and our ability to implement "efficiencies" has led to this rationale of "two worlds" The world of Nature and the animals and ecosystems "they" live in and the Human world. As humans created their own self-contained system, they lost touch and understanding of the other. It is no surprise to me that the most vocal environmentalists are the same ones who grew up in large cities.
