Nature is precious, and it’s our duty to understand it, not to upset it, so that we don’t lose our bearings and our vital needs.
Nature provides us with everything we need to live, and that’s why it exists. Unfortunately, man is so imaginative that he thinks he needs nothing but himself, so he invents religions, games, illusion, weapons and crime. What a cruel fog!
Let’s talk about hunting (which opens from September to February) and its stressful and harmful consequences for the environment, wild animals and humans.
What a disappointment! In 2015, to still be confronted with these outdated practices, perpetrating murders every year, in addition to polluting the planet.
Hunting has the effect of destabilising natural balances
The simple act of releasing lead into the environment poisons and kills the plants on which certain animals feed, falling ill and dying in their turn. Around 9,000 tonnes of lead are released into the environment every year. Over the centuries, this has triggered serious illnesses in humans, such as gastric and bronchopulmonary cancer, lead poisoning, and even encephalopathy (a group of brain disorders). There is so much more to be said about the effects of lead.
Wolves in northern regions, among others, are continually hunted, particularly for their fur and also because they hunt the same prey as humans. The pressure of being hunted to death can modify the behaviour of wolves, causing sustained stress, measured by the level of a hormone called cortisol.
Knowing that stress generates fear and uncertainty that affect the animal’s behaviour and physiology, it becomes anxious and its digestive functions are disrupted. It develops highly agitated and often repetitive behaviour, such as frantically marking a territory. It becomes aggressive because it is « attacked », and its reproduction is affected.
When the stability of an environment is disrupted, there is vulnerability, and this can destabilise a pack and upset its social structure, especially when the dominant member of the pack is shot. In this case, the wolves scatter and lose their bearings (dispersion, agitation and disorder), then fall back on domestic prey, which is often easier to catch.
All this could lead to the extinction of the Canis lupus species in the years to come.
Life is a priceless symbol, a priceless treasure, and if a species exists, it inevitably has a role to play in balancing an ecosystem.
It’s time for our governors to take a serious look at the subject of hunting and take the necessary and serious measures to abolish this party that no one enjoys any more, rather than stringing together the deceptions of the world of money like beads on a rosary. This is an urgent priority for our future.
Paradise is Nature and its biodiversity, our only way out!
I sincerely hope that the wolf retains its legendary mistrust of us.
Man is selfish, the wolf has a fairer vision. They know how to hunt intelligently, taking only what they need to live, and so protect the virtues of the Earth, every atom of which they know.
Finally, he is unquestionably superior to Man in the power that is Love. He is the symbol of courage, dignity and freedom.
We still have a lot to learn from him.
