The Law of Intended Consequences

Hunting is not euvoluntary (for the animals, anyway).

And polices have consequences. Add a non-native, farmed species to the endangered species act, watch as the incentive to keep herds around dwindles. If this effect is strong enough, the critter might well actually go true-blue extinct.

It should be enough to give conservationists pause, right?

"Feral does not mince her words. She would rather see the three species become extinct in Texas than see a single animal hunted in what she says are "canned hunts." She calls the ranchers "pimps." She says they are more interested in putting a head on the wall than in conserving the species."


Yikes! With friends like these, amirite?

  1. Market analysts said trimming of positions by speculators mainly put pressure on crude oil at the futures trade. 


Do you have suggestions on where we could find more examples of this phenomenon?
