    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.

    yes and I put the individual above the idea of a "system"

    "The death of a million is a statistic, the death of one is a tragedy"

    If you don't value individuals, then the system is meaningless.

    Oh and if we truly wanted to be humane we could simply perform vasectomies on the male elks. We tag them all the time anyway. Simple solution to the overpopulation.
