Re-introduction of Animals: A Bad Idea – 25 July 2006
“Re-introduction” or “restoration” (or whatever you want to call
it) of animals is a bad idea. There! I’ve said it! Every time I hear
about wolves or pandas or what-have-you being “re-introduced” in an
area where their numbers have dwindled, I think, “Here they go again,
interfering instead of leaving well enough alone.” How arrogant of
people to play games (or play God) with other animals’ lives!
And after the re-introduced animals begin to multiply, they are seen
as a threat – as in the case of wolves and cattle ranchers.
I do not support any re-introduction or restoration of animals, nor
do I support any sort of zoo. And the whole idea of breeding animals in
zoos is disgusting. The commercialization of these animals: all the
buying and selling, and the use of the babies as an attraction, is
reprehensible. In any such business, there is behind-the-scenes
I look forward to the day when animals have legal rights and their
boundaries are recognized. Human beings should take care of their own
problems and stop meddling with God’s creatures. Haven’t people made
enough of a mess of this earth?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
