haha. True dat. It's called the internet. Look at any youtube video and it degrades in "n" word this and other drivel and hate speech. At least this is a reasonable debate that has absolutely nothing to do with surfing. Like I said, Maybe in the future we can genetically modify the elk. Also, I don't think you've given it enough time. It would probably take a couple hundred years or more for the breeding cycle to adapt to a lack of predation. Of course they may never adapt. That's also a possibility. Nature is cruel. Any species is at risk of becoming extinct even without humans.
