  •  All the predators have proliferated? (6+ / 0-)

    Another wild claim that flies in the face of all evidence I have seen.

    Basically the only predators that have "proliferated" are those put on the endangered species list, - if creeping back from the edge of extinction can be called "proliferating". Even those that have adapted to humans (coyotes) are, at best, approaching their former abundance.

    •  black bear, bobcat never on list (2+ / 0-)

      same with cougar.

      If you knew anything about wildlife you'd know populations are not only way way up but they occur in places they haven't for over a hundred years.

      Dont' know what former abundance means. After all the other predators went extinct? After 9 out of ten humans died from introduced diseases?
