Hunting, Conservation, and Poaching

Journal Entry: Fri May 12, 2017, 5:33 PM


In this journal I will be discussing hunting, how it doesn't help conservation, and the affects of poaching on wildlife. I won't be discussing the causes of poaching, for that will be in another journal. Humans don't need to eat animals and it harms our bodies, but that will be discussed in detail in another journal.

Hunting of various animals, from deer, bison, wolves, bears, foxes, whales, dolphins, sharks, tigers, lions, rhinos, giraffes, etc. is often done out of the desire of fun and "bragging rights." Modern day hunting is no longer concerned about survival or a need. the act of hunting is actually doing more harm than good. While some species of animals are overpopulated, such as white tailed deer in Northern America, hunting these animals is actually doing the opposite of population control.

While ensuring populations do not get out of control, such as
human overpopulation and pet overpopulation are, we must also ensure wildlife populations don't become too much for their ecosystems. But what is the best way going about this? For the longest time it was assumed that simply hunting the animals would solve issues. The complete opposite happened. Due to a crisis with losing numbers many species ended up procreating even more. And with predators killed off by hunting, whether for sport or clearing them out for cattle farming, the other species were able to keep breeding freely. This allowed population to rapidly grow and thus begin to cause issues with loss of space and vegetation.

Hunting brings about another issue of which animals are killed. While natural predators go for the weaker and sick animals, hunters kill the larger and stronger ones. In the case of deer, for example, bucks collect and keep a herd of does to breed with. The stronger bucks are able to keep the weaker bucks away and pass on their genes. When a hunter kills a strong buck, the weaker bucks are able to breed with any doe and pass on their "lesser" genes. This allows the population to not only continue growing, but allows bad genes to spread.

A better way to handle overpopulation is with TNR. TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) is when an animal is humanely caught and castrated, just as you would take your dog to the vet to be fixed. It is humane, cost efficient, and safe. By TNR-ing strong bucks, for example, they will be able to keep their herds and mate with their does, but only not impregnate them. The weaker bucks will still be unable to breed and thus population will begin to decrease. Bucks will still have their desire to breed, for the most part, since they already have a buildup of testosterone in them. This is the same reason why you must fix your male dog at an early age for waiting too long will allow too much testosterone to stay inside of them.

TNR can be easily funded given how the money used for hunting and hunting licenses can instead be used for this humane practice. And castrating males is far easier than females, making it an even simpler solution. This can be done for any species, and best part is it doesn't cause anyone to die or harm the ecosystem.

While spaying females who have already gone through their heat cycle can bring a higher risk of cancer (have to spay BEFORE first heat cycle), female animals can be caught and have an IUD or birth control capsule inserted in them that lasts for years. This is inexpensive, less risky than spaying an already adult female, and ensures the animal is not harmed. And with birth control options getting better everyday for humans and other animals, it gets easier and more effective to use.

Hunting also brings about injuries to not just the hunters but other species. Dogs, cattle, cats, or other "unintentional targets" can end up being shot and killed/wounded for simply being mistaken for the target animal or getting in the way. Many hunters are also injured from being mistaken for a target animal, a gun discharging, killed by wildlife, or other hunting accidents.

Hunting is not a quick and painless death, either. The animals often live for minutes, hours, to even months with injuries from bullets, arrows, or even spears. Shots to the head are not always instant deaths, as there have been many cases of non-human animals, and even humans, living for years with injuries to their brains.
Such as this soldier with a bullet in his head, and this deer with an arrow in her head. Even wounds to the heart don't always guarantee a quick death. Animals can live for a while after being hit in agonizing pain before they finally die. Sometimes they manage to run off injured and are never found by the hunter again, only to die later or continue for the rest of their lives with a painful injury.

Hunting dogs are often shot accidentally or even purposefully. In Spain, dogs are hung for not doing well enough or getting too old. Dogs and horses are overworked, beaten, and killed when they are injured or become too old to continue. This is most common in countries such as Spain.

Hunting foxes, wolves, and other predators harms ecosystems for it allows prey animals to overpopulate and consume much vegetation. Predators are killed primarily for bragging rights and to help cattle farming. I will discuss the environmental issues of animal agriculture in more detail in another journal. Even though we do not need to eat or use animals, the current animal agriculture industry is destroying the planet not just by removing forests and causing habitation loss for wildlife, but also killing off wildlife and giving them less land to roam. Predators, having lost their natural prey when fleeing cattle ranchers and/or urban development, are left to find other sources of food if they hope to stay in the same area. This leads to them going after livestock. The cases of predators going after livestock is fewer than the media portrays it as, given how predators don't always get through the fences and avoid the much larger herds than what would be natural, but when it does happen it causes immense conflict and hatred towards the animals for trying to stay on their homeland. Trapping and releasing the predators into reserves or parks would be the best solution, but sadly many seem to think killing is the only answer to solve a problem.

Fox hunting doesn't help reduce population and is incredibly cruel. The foxes are chased down by up to a hundred hounds, and then ripped apart by them. The same case is true for other hunting using dogs. They dogs are trained to track down, overpower, and tear apart the animals they are hunting, whether foxes, hogs, badgers, raccoons, bears, dear, coyotes, etc. It is a gruesome, horrifying, and very painful way to die. And often times dogs are seriously injured or even killed by the animal they are going after.

The effects of poaching and trophy hunting are the same as licensed hunting. While poaching aims to kill animals for a specific body part, such as rhinos and their horns, it is just as cruel and devastating as hunting an animal for their meat. Similar tactics are used, from tracking down the animals and killing them with guns, arrows, spears, or even poisoning them. The animals die slow, painful deaths, and often in the case of poaching, mothers die with their infants beside them. Trophy hunting harms populations and the ecosystems due to killing apex predators, already endangered animals, and going after the largest individuals. The trophy industry doesn't pick problem animals and have them killed off to profit. Much of the time it is simply the first animal they find. The population of giraffes, elephants, lions, rhinos, and many other animals has significantly dropped due to trophy hunting alone.

Canned hunting has sprung up due to the popularity of trophy hunting. Lions are raised on farms where tourists may play with the lion cubs and have pictures taken. The lions are hand raised and become use to human interaction. When they are adults, they are taken to a large, fenced in area and released. People pay thousands of dollars to go into these enclosures on a vehicle and shoot the friendly lions when they come near for attention. The hunters are then told that they did something truly terrifying when they never were in any danger at all.

Hunting marine life, such as dolphins, whales, and sharks is also harming the marine ecosystem. Whales are electrocuted after being harpooned, then dragged aboard ships where they bleed out. Entire pods are wiped out by Japanese whalers, despite it being illegal to kill whales unless for scientific research or if you are an Eskimo. Dolphins are slaughtered brutally as well, stabbed and dragged ashore. Some are sold to aquariums or circuses across the world. And sharks, already being endangered for many species, suffer similar fates.

Hunting throughout history has seen to the extinction or near extinction of many species. Species now forever gone due to hunting include the Passenger Pigeon, Dodo Bird, Moa, West African Black Rhino, Pyrenean Ibex, Quagga, Caribbean Monk Seal, Sea Mink, Tecopa Pupfish, Great Auk, Elephant bird, Schomburgk's Deer, Barbary Lions, Atlas Bear, Warrah, Falkland Island Wolf, Zanzibar Leopard, Carolina Parakeet, Toolache Wallaby, Bubal Hartebeest, Stellar's Sea Cow, and many others.

Some species near extinction or possibly are extinct/making a comeback that hunters have almost killed off include Javan tigers, Bengal tigers, Rhinos, elephants, Tasmanian tiger, lemurs, sea turtles, tuna, gorillas, manatees, leopards, cheetahs, red wolves, grey wolves, giraffes, orangutans, sharks, and many other species.

Hunting holds no place in modern society. Killing wildlife for fun, "food," trophies, their body parts, or culling them in hopes of population control continues to not help the species or environment, nor is the best course of action. There is simply no need to destroy these animals when humane alternatives exist. Furthermore, encouraging killing has psychological effects on human individuals. Humans who are taught that killing others is alright and do so regularly are more likely to become abusive, sociopaths, or kill humans or pets.
With modern technology, it is now easier than ever to eat the natural diet that herbivorous humans should. We are better equipped to grow all the plants required to eat, uses less land, and therefore gives wildlife their freedom. Not to mention those who contribute to hunting are cowards who seem to believe hunting is the only way of proving themselves. Nothing is braver and respectable than showing compassion to even the most vulnerable of beings.

Other Educational Journals: Super Meat Can End Animal SufferingHumans don't need to eat meat. It causes so many illnesses from cancer to cardiovascular disease. It clogs the bowels, leads to earlier deaths in humans, and many other diseases. It causes over 82,000,000,000 lives to be taken every year, 51% of all pollution, deforestation, mass animal extinction, world hunger, and billions and billions of dollars. Humans don't need it, and the practice of obtaining it is to rape, imprison, torture, abuse, and horribly kill animals. Cutting them apart and skinning them while still alive, sometime even boiling them alive. Slaughterhouse workers stomp on the animals, beat them, rape them, and treat them like garbage. 95% of those who harm non-human animals, so many of these factory farm and slaughterhouse workers end up harming their own family members and friends. Communities nearby slaughterhouses and factory farms are ill from the pollution seeping into the ground and rivers.
There is NO good to eating meat.
The world is going vegan, as we can see wi
Why God Tells Us to be VEGAN in the Bible“God blessed them and said to them, “… Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground”. Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground – everything that has the breath of life in it – I give every green plant for food. And it was so.”
— Genesis 1:28-30
God gave us PLANTS to eat and told us to be stewards of the animals. A steward is defined as "an official appointed to supervise arrangements or keep order at a large public event, for example a sporting event." God never told us to be masters or kings of the animals and planet, but to be CARETAKERS of them, just as stewards would oversee and take care of the animals or lands of their king. In this case,
Human Overpopulation is REAL and SeriousHuman overpopulation is a real problem that sadly is ignored all too often. Now thanks to modern medicine and technology we are no longer seeing humans, primarily infants, dying in large enough numbers to keep population at a decent number. When it used to be you had 20 kids and only 3-5 made it to adulthood, that kept things steadier. And of course adults didn't live to long, from 30-50 at average. But now, almost every child lives long enough to procreate, and human life expectancy is longer.
Human population has more than doubled in the last 40 years alone. This large number of humans, over 7.4 billion, is devastating the planet. Earth can only sustain so much life with its limited space. We only have so much land to live on, grow food, and sustain our way of living. And we need to leave enough land for wildlife to also flourish, for without keeping a balanced ecosystem everything will crash.
We are not ready to move to another planet, and having so many kids is helping to add to cl
Homosexuality, Chromosomes, and Anti-VaccersHomosexuality, transgender, pansexual, asexual, demisexual, bisexual, heterosexual, sex, and chromosomes. Why is "chromosome" in that list? Well, because sexual orientation and your sex is determined by chromosomes.
For the longest time, and sadly some still today, believed that one "chose" their sexual orientation. That everyone was naturally born straight and some simply decided to be gay, transgender, or something else. Thanks to modern science we are proving this myth false. No one "chooses" their sex or sexual orientation. Chromosomes do that in the second trimester of development inside of the womb. In fact, not only do chromosomes decide on these two factors, but the existence of a "gay gene" also exists that makes it more likely for chromosomes to make someone's sexual orientation other than straight. While the gene for being straight is more dominant, it appears that the genes for other sexual orientations (or at least the gene that affects the change on chromosomes) is becomi
Pet Overpopulation, Dog Breeds, AKC, and PitbullsJust as  human overpopulation is real and is a serious issue, pet overpopulation of domesticated animals is also significant. In this journal we will discuss specifically dogs and cats for the other domesticated animals will be addressed in others. Dogs and cats have been domesticated by man originally for the purpose of hunting, dealing with pests, and protection. Over time as technology has improved pets have become family members to us, but to some they are simply there for a statement of wealth, that they "have" to have one to be normal, or as a means of making profit.
Dogs and cats have been bred so much that now there is a serious overpopulation problem. Puppy/kittenmills, backyard breeders, and pedigree breeders have continuously bred and sold cats and dogs despite there already being so many. Add that to the fact of strays who breed and people who simply le

Drem yol lok. Greetings.

I am Hispanic, vegan, animal rights activist, asexual, follower of Jesus Christ, and I draw/write creepy, dark, violent, and bloody artwork/stories. I work mostly with anatomy and creature design, hoping to one day be a creature concept artist for the movie and gaming industries. I write stories about dragons and aliens and have already written about 6,000 pages worth of storyline, facts, bios, etc. for my stories. I have also designed 60+ dragons, 50+ mythological creatures, and 200+ aliens for my stories.
Dragons are my true passion, and my fanart usually is of dragons from videogames. I do fanart for The Elder Scrolls, Star Wars, Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, Halo, and an occasional piece from various videogames or movies.
I also do a little photography and write sad/dark poems and essays about my characters or life.
I work in traditional mediums, and am working on how to use a WACOM tablet, Gimp, and Photoshop.

A bomb went off at an Ariana Grande concert just 5 hours ago.

I support Ariana Grande because she's a vegan and a kind woman, but I admit I'm not a big fan of her music. Just not my cup of tea. I prefer Eminem and more rock music. Most of her fans are children, so those fuckers who set off that bomb at her concert killed little kids. Reports say it seemed to have been a nail bomb, a bomb that shoots out hundreds of nails, but things are still up in the air. 20 dead, about 100 injured. Ariana is alive but in hysterics.

Who the fuck bombs people, let alone children? And, no, don't blame this on Muslims. The culprits have not been caught yet, and even if they are found out to claim to be part of a religion, that does NOT mean the religion supports terrorism (unless it's a cult).

Okay, be honest with me, people: If I opened commissions to do pet portraits, would any of you actually be willing to pay for those? Trying to make some extra cash! I posted flyers around my area, but so far no bites. No point commissions. I need real cash.

I would do portraits like this:
Maggie the Dovahkiin by Ga-Maleven Lady Margaret by Ga-Maleven Queen Genevieve by Ga-Maleven

Or, if you are also willing to pay, maybe I'll draw dragons, aliens, etc. But, nothing would be fanart (not legally allowed to do that...), nothing sexual, and nothing promoting violence/discrimination/hate speech, etc. I'm a vegan. You know I'm too nice (and FABULOUS!) to make such negative things.

Again, I only work traditional because I'm still learning photoshop. Not ready to be making money off of that yet (unless you like terrible jobs).

So, any of you that are REALLY interested, let me know and we can talk prices and subjects. For my pet portraits, I do 9x12" graphite on Bristol paper for $100. An additional $20 if you want them dressed as a character.

If you want something else let me know and I'll tell you what that would be. Size and medium will differ the prices since obviously bigger takes more time, and some mediums are more expensive so I have to charge more.

Please let me know! :D
Well, I'm pissed... I took pictures off my phone and put them onto Jarvis (my computer), then deleted them off the phone. As I was renaming files I accidentally hit "delete" rather than "rename." So, I hit ctrl+z to get the file to come back but it ended up removing the 42 pictures I had just taken off my phone.

I now can NOT find these images everywhere I search on my computer, I downloaded 3 recovery programs and they have pulled up nothing, and even contacted Geek Squad and they were like, "Maybe the files are gone."

I am so fucking pissed off. Who creates a command that fucking ruins everything without a way to fix it? While some of the pictures I can live without, I took several of WIPs of the nude models I did in Drawing IV. I was going to post those WIPs and the finished images to my gallery today, but now I can't find them. I REALLY wanted to show the WIPs so you guys could see what I did each day in class and now... FUCK THIS!

I don't know what to do... Do any of you guys know of a way I might be able to recover my files? I even had some cute pictures of my dog I won't be able to recreate... I still have thousands of pictures of her, but I wanted those as well.... We had gone on an adventure to the Manassas battlefield and I wanted to share those pics on facebook... :(

And my phone is a piece-of-shit so no, it doesn't have a recycle bin. I already tried seeing if somehow the images were still there but they aren't...

UPDATE: The fourth file recovery program I downloaded was able to recover the files! :D
W00t! 5 out of 6 classes are As! Still waiting for final grade on the EVIL class....yay woot WOOT- Emoticon PARTY HARD :tardw00t: Art Trade: Woot

I apparently need to learn to play bagpipes. Also, I love the line, "Sex outside of marriage leads to bestiality." You just can't make up this kind of stupidity.

Just talked to my sister about eating meat and weather or not she would go vegan or raise her own animals humanely, she says she'd choose the latter, and she doesn't like meat, except for turkey that doesn't look like it came from a turkey. And she says she won't be "pushing out any kids" same as me. Just thought you'd like to know.
