Did you see the picture of Heather Mills McCartnay trying to pet a seal. It of course snapped at her! What is with people and their perception of "wild" life. I know of a little girl that had her fingertips bitten off while feeding a sandwich to a bear. She was seated on her mother's lap with the window all the way down. Better view? I also saw a fellow trampled by a moose while trying to get a closeup in Jasper. (Smile! Moosie!)

I would concur, jjaycee98 , that some people have questionable minds in terms of their "relationships" with wild creatures. While we should protect endangered species, since so often they are unable to protect themselves from our sometimes-aggressive advances into their territory and ways of life, we must keep in mind that they are wild animals and, therefore, they aren't going to respond well to hugs and kisses.

I watched a clip on CNN where Danny Williams was debating with Paul and the Misses. The Premier stated that debating with Veggins was pointless because they don't believe in eating anything that breaths. He is a fiesty little fellow.

its called disney meets reality.

people can seem to think that the animals in the wild are just like their childhood memories of the animated variety. I once met a person who insisted that elephants are loving, soft, and friendly and would hear nothing of how bull elephants are one of the most dangerous animals in africa. I also met a person that didn't believe lions view people as prey.

When I was a child I had a pet cow named Moo--Moo. I loved that cow, I played with it in the pasture everyday and then one day Moo-Moo was gone. Dad told me Moo-Moo went to live on a bigger farm. Can you guess what happened to Moo-Moo, yep that was our meat for the winter. Sob, life's lessons can be cruel.

There is a place in BC called Lund (I think that's it) where draft dogers from the states went to live a hippie lifestyle. My god that town is like going back to the sixties, weed, house boats, long hair, sandles it's like time stood still.

They aren't if you sleep by a fire or fire off a gun, they spook easily. Still I wouldn't be surprised if they have to be shot in some areas to protect livestock, and occasioanlly removed from settlements, especially when food is scarce.

it's like the show "when animals attack" or as I like to call it "When stupid people get bit" you have to not get too close to wild animals and unless you know what bothers them. You see two beef bulls fighting and breaking though fences you understand the estructive power of elefphans which are at least 3 times as big

"As a result of widespread persecution, cats in the wild have become one of the most threataened major groups of land animals. Nevertheless, the African lion numbered perhaps 200,000 individuals in 1991. They are generally protected even through some 150 humans have been mauled in the Gir National Park alone. Conversely in the Skeleton Coast Park in West Africa's Namibia the lions are all gone. Some were killed outside park boundaries by livestock herdsmen; others were forced to leave by drought."
http://www.oaklandzoo.org/atoz/azlion.html

"Humans are fearful of being attacked by lions and of their livestock being killed by lions. In most cases, this has not been a large problem. Lions have historically coexisted with the Masai and their cows in east Africa. When the prey base is plentiful, lions do not typically attack cattle. Also, if a lion sees a human on foot, it will typically run in the opposite direction. (Eltringham, 1979; Packer and Pusey, 2001)

There have been well-publicized attacks on humans by lions, such as the man-eating lions of Tsavo (killed 135 construction workers) portrayed in the 1996 movie The Ghost and the Darkness. As lions lose habitat, they are more frequently entering human inhabited areas, thus creating more conflict and potential for "problem lions" that attack humans. (Dudley, 2002; Pickrell, 2004)

Lions are frequently infected with FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) which is similar to HIV. In Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Kruger National Park of South Africa, 92% of lions tested had FIV. FIV does not seem to adversely affect lions but it will kill domestic cats. (Packer and Pusey, 2001; Urban and West, 2002)"

I didn't see the shot of her getting snapped at by a seal. Was It a baby seal? If it was, she may have well clubbed it to death afterwards to make it quicker. Baby seals have no scent (like deer) and if touched by a human the mother abandons it.

Back in the olden days,

when I was young, while growing up in northern B.C. a neighbor's dog was killed by what, at the time, was thought to be a cougar. Usually, cougars will carry a dog off and eat it. This dog, an eighty pound Lab, was killed, but no attempt was made to carry it away. Another dog was eventually killed but this dog, a large German Shepherd cross, got a piece of the cat's ear. The cat was a large Canada Lynx was killed a few days later and it had a freshly missing ear. The hunters who got the Lynx swore the animal weighed over a hundred pounds. All they had was the skin so that record Lynx could never be confirmed.

Didja catch the story about the "Grizzly Man". Happened in Alaska.

Dipshit believes he "knows" all about Grizz, talks to them, gets close, for years. Totally arrogant and in denial. Everyone else was a know nothing.

Finally one night, he leaves the tent to either investigate a noise or shoo away a bear and the bear kills him. Believe there is a tape recorder going and you can hear shouts, etc.

Unfortunately, his girlfriend is also along on this trip and she gets killed too.

The real bad news is the bears get shot by wardens when they come to investigate. Right, two bears, forgot.

So look, bears don't like ya, and will kill ya. Stay away from bears.

I felt real sorrow for the girlfriend, and the two bears but I laughed my ass off at the thought of his "best friends" turning on him and ripping his friggin arm off while he watched...........WHOA BEAR.......WHOA AH SAY

I once was walking down Yonge Street in Toronto and there was a guy walking his cougar on a chain leash... I kid you not. I stayed way back, but lots of people were stopping to give the nice kitty a pat, and of course it eventually lashed out when it had had enough and nearly sliced someone in two. How the guy was allowed to walk a big cat down the street, I don't know....

The best part is that mother seals often kill or abandon babys that get human stink on them. Sooo... every coked-out celebrity that ventures to the front to pet a seal, ultimately kills it. How many of those adorable little fuzzy-wuzzies do you think Greenpeace and PETA have snuffed since the 70's?

HAH! Hippies...

I saw a video once where a "hunter" ( some douchbag weekend warrior in Rambo Cammies) had smeared himself with stag urine in hopes of attracting a doe he could shoot. A stag showed up and beat the crap out of him. Hi-larious.
