I do not know where this OP belongs, I will leave that to the Moderators, but I will write it.
I have a huge problem with perception of events that transpire and are reported to be a violation of people.
For instance, shark attacks. Okay, yes, when they happen they are very scary and can be devastating to those involved, witnesses and victims alike,
but who here thinks it is the sharks fault? Did they come on land and attack unprovoked? NO. Humans invaded their territory and paid the price, it
is not the sharks fault. Sharks own the ocean. It is their home. They have lived there for millennial, do humans live in the ocean? NO. So how is
it we are so surprised and in an uproar when it happens? Because we are idiots. Surf the waves, swim among them, catch them and tag them for
whatever reason, research them, dissect their stomach contents, but if you get bitten by one you asked for it.
The animal kingdom is full of stories where people have been attacked by animals living in their own habitation, only to have a public outcry when
there is an attack; alligators, crocodiles, lions, tigers, snakes, elephants, etc. The animals are never at fault ever, no matter what, because they
are only protecting what is theirs rightfully and behaving in a way that only they know how.
Animals do not kill for sport in their habitat, they kill for food and to protect their own species from extinction. Why do humans think it is okay
for them to kill, but not for animals to do so? Animals do not deal in greedy commercial gains, humans do. Why do we get all teary eyed when the
shark eats a walrus? Walruses eat penguins. Why do we get all emotional when a lion tracks down an antelope? Why do we think alligators are not
entitled to find food?
The amount of hypocrisy that we humans propagate on a daily basis is laughable. We eat cows, chickens, fish, pork and do not even think twice about
it, but if we watch a video of animals surviving and finding food to eat we think, OMG, poor Bambi. When is the last time you saw an animal with a
gun hunting for the hell of it? Polar bears eat fish. Alligators eat snakes. Snakes eat mice. Humans cultivate animals. Animals do not cultivate
humans. Humans experiment on animals. There is not a human zoo for animals to go feed the popcorn to.
If humans insist on invading animal territory like they do human countries, then they get what they deserve if an elephant stomps them or a bear rips
their arms off. You like those alligator boots and handbags, huh? Those shoes you were made of snakeskin are cool. Those leather outfits you wear
out on the town came from little lambs.
