A good quote

“What is man without the beasts? If the beasts were gone, man would die from a loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected.”

— Chief Seattle, Suquamish People

Yes, even the deer that relieved itself on my lawn has meaning.

    I am not so sure. Where I live in Northern New Mexico I have nightly visits from about 15 deer a skunk and a bear in the alley rummaging thru the trash. A mess in the aley, my trees have to be protected from the deer and the skunk leaves a mess, seems my yard is a good kitty litter for the skunk.

    Yes, but….we’re all *connected* maaaahn!

    Anon, you make a good point.

    My friend’s folks in Silver City are having a devil of a time with herds of deer lounging in their yard and ruining everything (including kicking dents in their truck).

    Again, not enough predators….
