They help the population of prey animals like the elk, deer, moose, and caribou, by taking away the weak and letting the strong survive. This is important part in the ecological system. By enhancing the strength into the herds. Without animals like the wolf to eliminate the weak, old , sick and injured, the herd of deer would swelter. They would become so numerous that they would starve to death.
The fact is that “one study of tigers in Bangladesh indicated that two-thirds of the animals avoided human beings, but that one-third were taught by their mothers to hunt humans. The threat to human life should not be exaggerated; there are few tigers and nearly all of them want nothing to do with humanity” (“Bengal Tiger”). Statistically it can be assumed that Richard Parker fits into that sixty-six percent that will not attack a human. Even if the statistics are not true, Richard Parker “was caught while still a cub” (Martel 310-311). This allows the readers to deduce that he does not have too much recollection of his mother’s teachings, since he was placed in a zoo environment until the sinking of the Tsimtsum.
Eventually, the extremely large population of moose could use up all of their available natural resources, causing the island to become vegetationless and the moose to starve and die because of the lack of resources. This is why wolves need to stay on the island to control the biotic community and environment. As you can see, wolves are an important factor in the health of Isle Royale. Without them the whole island could perish. That’s why we can’t let them become extinct from the island.
If anything or any specie is absent, then there is a high probability of imbalance in eco system. Leopold suggests that there is a strong need for land ethic because he sees a lack of his beliefs among the rest of the human beings. In the long run Leopold realized that how wolves help creating a balance in the eco system and how the deer and other species were causing a lot of damage to their natural habitat. This is a perfect example of what happens when there is excessive safety, in the long run it only causes
of meat per day, but it’ll take several days to fully consume their larger prey. Other than sleeping, all four species of lynx use trees for stalking and jumping on prey, it’s their main method of hunting. The Eurasian lynx hunt using their amazing hearing and vision, which makes them a very powerful predator, they have successfully killed adult deer weighing up to three hundred pounds. Although being a great hunter, the lynx have fallen prey to grey wolfs and wolverines by killing the lynx before it can escape into
Macomber has volunteered to come to the camp in order to kill animals for pleasure and to better his shot for his own game hunting purposes. Aristotle believes that courage is not something that you learn by habit, when Macomber is first scared by the lion his instincts are to run and not face what is coming at him. “Macomber had not thought how the lion felt as he got out of the car. He only knew his hands were shaking and as he walking away from the car it was almost impossible for him to make his legs move (pg15).” By the end of the story once he is betrayed by his wife he is able to muster up the courage to kill a buffalo, but it is only after he fails and
In the commentary “Let People Own Exotic Animals” it states in line 4-7, “Responsible private ownership of exotic animals should be legal if animal welfare is taken care of. Terry Thompson did not represent the typical responsible owner.” Thompson was not a good caretaker of exotic animals, and it was not the animals’ faults they were set free to put people in danger, it was Thompson’s irresponsibility. In the Article Of the Week it talks about how Wolf Run Wildlife Refuge puts safety fences around their animals to ensure they stay inside. If exotic animal owners do this they can own exotic animals without facing the consequence of them losing
Other cases such as hunting for sport are also justifiable, as it help reduce over populated species of animals. Killing in war is something that can’t be helped and there are reasons why people kill others. According to the article “Is War ever Morally Justified?” many deaths occur and they happen because of the enemy shooting at U.S. troops. A 19 year old boy gets in a gunfight with a young
As a matter of fact, their food supplies are wild game, such as deer and duck, that they hunt for food. In order for people like Alaskans to survive, they need guns to kill these animals. If guns are banned, how will the people that live in these remote areas get their food? It is unrealistic to believe that you can just go outside, hunt a bear, and kill it using hand-to-hand combat. Many people can come to the conclusion that the term “gun control” can be ambiguous, but the true meaning of it is laws that control how guns are sold and used and who can own them.
Exotic animals belong in the wild, not as “pets” in people 's backyards. Almost every owner of an exotic animal is severely injured or killed, but once the people buy them they will soon face the consequences. In some states it is illegal to even have them there, and against. The reason people keep these extremely dangerous animals is because they get attached to them and find them cute. The eighth most dangerous pet is the scorpion.
