One of them said, "We plant three trees for every one we take out."

I said, "But how do you replace a 10,000 year-old ecosystem?"

They just looked at me.


With all due respect, hasn't hunting also extirpated many species and complete ecosystems. I was surprised to read that the Eastern Cougar Foundation is in favor of hunting these animals. Sounds like a front to a sport hunting group to me.
