A conservation plan in Australia brought crocodile numbers up so much that nearby humans began to feel threatened. What are your thoughts on this battle of territories?

+mattroski007 they're special alright!! To many words come to mind

"Threatened"? People DIED. People who place animals before humans are a special kind of vermin.

Matt Blisskin donate? You can’t just donate other species. Hunting for survival? Fine. Hunting for trophies, sport, etc. No. Btw, you mean donate them to what?

Well for one, reptiles are typically easier to breed for conservation in general because they can lay dozens of eggs at once while large mammals will only have a few offspring per year maximum.

Sounds like some sick revenge story. Imagine raising your daughter's killers by the thousands just for slaughter. That cant be a healthy thought patter to have. Look at how she feeds them probably thinking, "yea you're going to be a purse, You're going to be a belt, and you're going to be a pair of boots".

Australians should be killing all the crocs that they can, and if the crocs go out of existence, well, that's "survival of the fittest".
VeganVixen (25 days ago)
We are so morally depraved and apathetic... You could also encourage breeding of dogs but making dog fighting more popular and profitable, but that doesn't make it okay. You could increase our own population by starting a business of enslaving humans for all kinds of purposes, but that doesn't make it okay. Benefiting other animals while harming others doesn't cancel out the harm. Animals aren't mere population numbers, they are all sentient beings. Each one is an individual with their own unique personalities and life experiences. Each one has the right to his or her own life. We need to stop looking to "conserve" species as "resources" and start looking to respecting and protecting the well-being and rights of all sentient beings.

Crocodiles can't decide for their own lives, while government decide if they will die or not.. They have LIVES, we are the reason why they can't choose their own habitat, because we invaded their place.. They are born dangerous, people born with brain that are smarter than them.. So, if you know that they will harm you.. Just avoid and use your BRAAAAIN!!.. Poor baby animals! Money does blind people from kindness!

So they are raising crocs for slaughter but somehow, 8:45 the hunter culling problem Crocs is asked if he feels bad? What a joke. I'm to believe that a 'wild' croc has more of a 'soul' than one grown domestically? Shotty journalism... but I see the ease of taking the emotional route as to the route of educational journalism.

This is the power of economics. Humans only care about enriching themselves. Clarissa Dickson Wright advocated the same for things like rare breed pork. It works. It saves species. Even if their death and farming is an unfortunate side-effect.

Would the application of this conservation method be feasible in regard to large mammals such as tigers who birth far fewer offspring in contrast to crocodiles who can lay 10s of eggs?
רועי ה (3 months ago)
we can not compare water living creature to a land creature because it is not the same. People cannot just build a farm for crops on a river or a small lake in contradiction to the rain forest where people are chopping and burning down to build new villages and farms for crops. A commercial raising of an animal can save the species but open up a door to more illegal hunting and animal abuse in private farms.

I had alligator tail in Florida... delicious. It was about the consistency of calamari when deep fried. I wouldn't mind letting people hunt them (during a season) on rivers where people live. Any parks and wildlands could be off limits to prevent over-hunting. Manage them to reduce interactions perhaps :-(

David Buschhorn I had fried alligator chunks in Colorado last I went, along with bison. I have to admit, it’s very good. The meat in a large chunk is quite savory, and the consistency is amazing too.
David Buschhorn (3 months ago)
+D-RayTheGreat No, but it's good. I've heard some people don't like it, but it wasn't gamy or fishy or anything. Just like calamari rings for texture. Chewy. I wouldn't make a steak out of it without marinating it or tenderizing it a LOT first. I had it at the Yearling Restaurant in Cross Creek, Florida.

Saltwater crocodiles can grow up to over 20 feet long and live up to 70-100+ years. They're much larger than the Nile crocodiles of Africa.
Josh McNeil (3 months ago)
What you call a "problem crocodile" is human population getting larger and invading their territory and facing the coniquences granted you can't keep moving out of area but relocate them instead of killing them how would you feel if circumstances were flipped!
Josh McNeil (10 days ago)
+mattroski007 all species including humans should be treated equally human numbers have exploded and that is effecting all of nature negatively including other humans nobody is justifying any genocide but if you think about it this could be classed as genocide.
mattroski007 (10 days ago)
No, it's because of regulations that massively exploded their numbers, did you even watch the video? People that place animals before humans are the same type of people who are able to justify genocide.
