But as natural selection goes that during over population of species disease and viruses will eventually control the population and when nearly finished getting the numbers down it may jump species to us as shown in history so eventually it will come back and bite us.

What we don't realize is that the only species that is destroying this planet is human

It is a laugh, we are already now complaining that as amature astronomers light pollution is getting so bad we can not do astronomy, and billboard in space will be a problem, yet no one considers light pollution on wildlife, and how many wales are killed every year most likely due to SOUND pollution in the oceans. We have no right to be her if all we do is destroy

All it is with humans is us, us us

Hi Jeremy,
A few years ago some sperm whales washed up close to where i used to live.
https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/...8df9e916a628db
The papers said they were probably chasing fish and got caught up in the shalows. Sperm whales are deep sea preditors and dont come in the gulf that they came up so they're wrong there.
I was speaking to a guy who was working on a oil exploration ship doing sonar and deep sea explosive devices about 100km away a week earlier.
May only been coincidence but i bet one of the whales had it ears and sonar blown out and got totally lost and the others followed.
It must be so hard for these animals to "listen" to the oceans with all these noisy boats around and us humans dumping plasic as we go.
Cheers
Andy

I apologize if I get carried away, but I really wish third world countries would do more, and America

Last year i had this little magpie follow me around all day at work waiting for me to roll over stones to get worrms.
After a while i there were more trades on the job and scared it away.
"Dave" now lives in the trees by the main gate on the property and every now and then sees my car and comes for a vist.
Cheers
Andy

People often hate magpies as they kill much such as baby birds and squirrels, this also upsets me to think of but it is their way to love and they only do it to live, I think they are beautiful looking birds

They love cat/dog food

Hi Raymo,
Dave did tuck his leg up all the time the same way seagulls do.
I don't know why they do it but he just looked straight into my eyes and tucked his leg up. Id feel sorry for him and jump off the scaffold and start rolling stones over and expose worms.
Good trick anyway.
Saw him this morning at the main gate for a bit of sliced ham.
Still takes it out of my hand and then flies back to the trees.
Got a funny feeling Dave might be a Davette.
Cheers
Andy
