This is like the "back and forth" that went on in Alaska during the '70's. First it was the animal rights activists that wanted the wolf hunts stopped. Then it was the Hunters that pointed out that the growing wolf packs were causing a decline in the Moose herds. When they started hunting the wolves again, then there were too many moose and everyone bitched about the damage they caused as they came into town and fed on gardens.
Now if we could just find a balance, just like Mother Nature used to take care of without human help.
