Keep Wildlife Wild - Grand Canyon National Park


U.S. National Park Service PolicyFeeding wild animals disrupts their lives, and is dangerous for people.

Many things we eat are toxic to animals. When animals become used to being fed, they become habituated and no long act naturally. They often become aggressive and will attack people to take food. NPS staff finds it heartbreaking when they are forced to euthanize animals whose aggressive behaviors were caused by being fed by well-meaning people. Animals that are fed from cars congregate near roads, and are at a high risk of being killed by a car collision. Animals that are fed often become dependent on food handouts and lose the ability to feed themselves naturally.

Your Say

Is that why african bipodal carbon units are so quick to attack any and every thing that comes close?

But we have to do this: We're doing it for the children.

Pathetic that 46 million Americans cannot take care of themselves and are dependent on the Gubmint. 5-10% of the country, I might understand. 20% is sinful.

"...46 million Americans cannot take care of themselves..."

They can, just like everybody can.
But they are lazy.
So gov't decided to give some of the booty to them.
That makes them even lazier.
So the gov't steals even more booty to give to them.
Rinse, repeat.

The obvious solution is to wring the necks of every single person in favor of stealing.

We should take all the welfare recipients and ship them to Jellystone where the NPS can teach them how to feed themselves. Those that insist upon lingering next to the roads get shot as a safety measure and as an object lesson to the balance of the loafers.

At some point a policy of preventing them from breeding anywhere except in the Jellystone hinterlands.
