it's an epidemic!

Here's a good example of how effective the Endangered Species Act has been. We protected alligators and they thrived. Now we need protection from THEM.

In Southeast Georgia, you can find alligators all over the place, wherever you have water. Golf courses are literally crawling with them, and they've been eating pet dogs for YEARS around where I live. If we have a lot of dry weather, they show up in people's swimming pools.

Also, a lot of dumbasses FEED those critters, so gators aren't nearly as afraid of Man anymore as they SHOULD be. I agree with the Catfish Philosophy on alligators: the only good one is a DEAD one.

I really believe that we need to have an open hunting season on 'em, the same way we do with deer, to thin the population. Plus, the tail makes pretty good eating.

And I would much rather eat an alligator than have one eat ME.

I'm not a big "hunter" per se, but I'd go for a hunting season on those things....*shiver*

How about a rule:

You feed a gator, you swim with said gator.

I've never seen a wild gator outside of the Florida panhandle, but I know this, law or not: If one tried to snack on my dog or a person, there would be no hesitation on my part about shooting it in the face. I don't even know that I'd hesitate just seeing one close to my house. Buckshot is a surprisingly good deterrent.

I'd just hide the body somewhere and not tell anyone. Same for a bear. I don't care what the damn law says -- the lives of me and mine, including pets, are more important than bears, gators, and criminals.

Who in gods name feed alligators? And how? What are they doing, tossing food to the damn things? JCA!-how can anyone be so f**king dumb.

Alligators are awful. Until they can be boxed up and carted off to a region with no pets or people ---- then let's vote for that hunting season idea.

The gubmint pulled that over here in Australia as well.

Made it so that the only people allowed to kill crocs were the Abos.

Now they thrive.

Only upshot to this policy is that they infest the northern areas of the Island , which are the same areas that the illegeals like to land.

Crocodiles like "indonesian" food too.

Diddn't know crocks were ever actually endangered.

But the ESA is for sure a proven Crock!

I could double the size of your blog on this one, but I won't! :)

The ESA today is nothing but a tool used by the eco-goofies to cost us all money! Money in the billions of dollars!

Out west we now have wolves, like gators but run in packs and will not stay in the area they were put. But of course are federally protected as well.

We The People, build a DAM across a river. Effectivly altering forever two ecosystems. Do we accept the altered systems? NO we spend billions more in a futile attempt to keep them the same after we build said dam!

NONE of the species are extinct or even in close proximity of becoming so. They are just displaced to areas of the system that can support them.

BILLIONS of our tax dollars are poured into organizations that by law, 501c3's, should not even have a seat at the table!

Saving the NW Salmon. Here is another mega blunder orchrestrated by the green-goofies! First step, how about killing a few seals which consume TONS of them each year? Second how about a small though that water flows downhill and fish swim in the water? I think the Columbia river is large enough to allow a secondary channel to be well watered and provide a pathway for the Salmon.

Cost lots of money? Yup, but had it been implemented when first proposed, it's total cost would not even be close to the money that has been spent / wasted with other measures that DO NOT WORK!

The ESA needs to be repealed! Then replaced with something workable.

Oh one final item. There is a fish in the middle of the mohave desert. Only place in the world it exists. When the area was given nat monument status to protect the fish, seems there was 5k or more of them. Today the count is 50! That was not a misprint! 50 fish exist in this natural and protected environment which has been nurtured to near extinction by the very hands that decided it needed protection.

Seems thay should have left the got daaumed thing alone!
