Was sent this link by a friend of mine(also an ATS reader but only a lurker)
did a search and nothing turned up on ATS so thought i would post it here.


It seems that the beast`s have had enough...all of them....from the normally harmless to the totally lethal....

Quote
"It's happening everywhere. Authorities in America and Canada are alarmed at the increase in attacks on humans by mountain lions, cougars, foxes and wolves. Romania and Colombia have seen a rise in bear maulings. In Mexico, in just the past few months, there's been a spate of deadly shark attacks with The LA Times reporting that, 'the worldwide rate in recent years is double the average of the previous 50'. America and Sierra Leone have witnessed assaults and killings by chimps who, according to New Scientist, 'almost never attack people'. In Uganda, they have started killing children by biting off their limbs then disembowelling them.

There has been a surge in wolf attacks in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Russia and France. In Australia, there has been a run of dingo killings, and crocodile violence is up. In Beijing, injuries from cats and dogs have swelled by 34 per cent, year-on-year. In America, the number of humans killed by pet dogs has increased sharply since 2000. In Australia, dog attacks are up 20 per cent. In Britain, nearly 4,000 people needed hospital treatment for dog bites in 2007, a figure that has doubled in the past four years. In Bombay, petrified residents are being slaughtered in ever-increasing numbers by leopards, leading J. C. Daniel, a leopard specialist, to comment, 'We have to study why the animal is coming out. It never came out before.' In Edinburgh, in June, there was a string of bizarre fox attacks - a pensioner was among the victims. In Singapore, residents have been being terrorised by packs of macaques. Sharon Chan, a national parks official, told reporters, 'It's a very weird situation."

so what do the intelligent minds at ATS think about this?

i kind of agree with the author that the beast`s have had enough....i think the worm has turned.

Yeah, this sort of thing has been going on for the last few years. It gives some pause for thought and concern. I actually did a thread on this particular topic a while back. Here is the link to the thread that I created, if you're interested:
Animals going wild

Go animals! I'm rooting for ya! As a big dangerous animal myself I say I take it too those that try to distinguish themselves from us with that moniker of "Human" These freaks can't even wake up with out feeling the need to put on three or four outer layers of clothskin over their true skin. Why they feel the need to hide there true skin is beyond me. I tell ya if you put one of these humans in my habitat they would not last one minute.

DOWN WITH HUMANS!

Could it be evolution?

I remember hearing about moose behaviour in my area.. They used to either run or attack when you approached them.. but then they would get killed if they approached hunters.

So now all the mooses around here instictly run away when you meet them, as the "run away" gene has been passed to them?.. all mooses who ran were the ones that survived the hunters, and thats what we see in the moose population today.


What if the animals are evolving. I had some examples of what or why, but i forget.. ill get back when i remember.

I don't know if it's evolution or not, but there are weird things going on in this world.

here is another quote from the same article....

Quote
"Stories like these remind us that there are millions of beasts armed with teeth and stingers, who can out-sniff, out-run, out-fly, out-fight and out-bite every one of us. The eerie truth is that, right now, we're surrounded. As a species, we've been at the top of the food chain for so long, we've forgotten that 'humans' are mere anthropoid apes and, in distant millennia, we had to fight the feral armies to get here. In our hubris, we imagine we're an animal apart. For centuries, we've been told by priests and scientists that animals are not much more than unfeeling, unthinking, unselfconscious automatons. They're a gift from God, and their purpose is to have paracetamol rubbed into their eyes, to be turned into fancy trousers to be stuffed with nuts on His birthday. Many mainstream scientists still warn against anthropomorphism. But it doesn't stop the many people who are secretly wondering what's really going on behind those inscrutable black eyes? Are the birds talking about us? Do lobsters sulk? Can one moose love another? The more scientists have discovered about the inner lives of animals, the more troubling and strange things have become. 'Things are really changing,' acknowledges Bekoff. 'There's a lot of new behavioural research, a lot of new neuroscience research that demonstrates they are far more complex than was thought. We're not inserting into animals something they don't have.'


Bekoff describes the sound Darwinian logic beneath this gigantic paradigm shift. Simply, if our brains have developed the capacity for a rich emotional inner-life over the millions of years they've been evolving, then why not theirs? 'If you believe in biological continuity then, if we have emotions, they have emotions. If we have a heart, they have a heart."


Do we really think that we are so special that we are the only species capable of evolution??
