Protecting the Ecosystem or Animal Cruelty

Is hunting to control the population of animals OK or is it just animal cruelty? Here are some animals that are hunted in North America and around the world. Check it out before you make up your mind!


Population Control: Coyotes

Nearly 100,000 coyotes are killed each year in the [kwlink]United States[/kwlink] in an attempt to contol numbers and protect farmers' livestock and crops, according to USDA Wildlife Services. Coyotes prefer to live in remote [kwlink]wooded areas[/kwlink], but with continual encroachment by humans on their territory, these predators have had to learn to adapt to new environments - like cities. For the most part, coyotes are a shy animal that prefer to stay away from humans, but they have been known to attack small children and [kwlink]pets[/kwlink] when food becomes scarce.


Population Control: Cats and Dogs

Due to pet overpopulation, the Humane Society of the United States estimates that three to four million cats and dogs are euthanized (killed) each year by pet shelters because there is no one to adopt them. Dogs and cats can have a lot of babies at one time, so in order to keep these animals off the streets, and out of animal shelters, it is encouraged that you spay or neuter your dog or cat. Since pets are domesticated, they need attention and care, so having a bunch of them stray, hungry and swarming with disease isn't safe for humans or other animals.

If some girls want to walk on the street with literally no clothes on, is that fine too?Thats their way of expressing themselves! But then, they are lost anyway, so who cares?It doesnt matter if you are gay or not, if you are not a Christian!  THE BIBLE:Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the ######## immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. SO FLY A KITE if you think you can be a gay christian. Now, now. Calm down. And, everyone is entitled to their opinion. But, you, young lady, have carried yourself around on this forum as a heavy homophobic whether you would like to admit it or not.   How someone else dresses shouldn't concern you. Just because someone might wear more than another, doesn't always make them any less modest. And just because someone has one religion than another, doesn't make much difference. Does it alter your life in a personal way? Does someone being gay alter your life in a personal way? Or what about if someone chooses to wear a skirt over pants? No, it doesn't. Because it shouldn't concern you. Here's a clue: Not everyone believes in the same things that you do nor are they going to view it the exact same, Christian or not. If I believed in God, but I didn't see things the exact same way that you do, does that make me any less of a believer?   My, my, you really like the phrase "go fly a kite." Anyways, hate to break it to you, but sexuality actually has nothing to do with what religion you decide to be as well. You can be gay and Christian while you can be bisexual and Muslim.

I believe that if they dont get saved and quit theyre freaking lifestyle, they will go to hell. Dont you dare call me ####  phobic, either. I am not afraid of gays. homophobia; dislike or prejudice against homosexual people. i'm a christian and i believe that everyone should have the right to actively live the lifestyle they choose. what did gay people ever do to you? what's wrong with love? it's people like you who give christian's a bad name. it's 2017, get a grip of your prejudice ways! god would be ashamed at this kind of behaviour. your bigotry makes me sick!
