Just finished this up. I’ve been exploring themes of animal (including human) population and it’s affects on the earth.
“Hunting deer is necessary to control their population”. This common quote has always fascinated me as I immediately think to myself, “well what happened to the deer’s natural predators?” The wolves and cougars were driven out and hunted down by humans. Not to be confused as a misanthropy piece, but rather an epiphany piece to help shed some light on this particular ecological conundrum.
