While watching one of those real time police shows on TV, this one was following cops in Alaska, the cops responded to a call about a dog being attacked by a lynx. The dog was not killed, it was bloodied up a bit, but it was going to recover just fine. The cops decided that they needed to kill the lynx because it may attack a child or another dog. The first thing that came to my mind is that the dog probably chased the lynx and provoked the attack. Don’t kill the lynx for protecting itself. If anything, tranquilize it and relocate the lynx to an area further away from residential neighborhoods.

The cops went looking for the lynx. A gun shot was heard, and all the cops went in the direction of the gunshot. There lying dead in the snow was a lynx. A fireman shot the lynx. What the hell is a fireman doing out shooting a lynx? How did any of them know this is even the lynx the dog attacked? This pissed me off a little.

Later in the day I was reading “The Cosmic Connection” by Carl Sagan. He made this statement: “We care for a small fraction of the organisms on Earth – dogs, cats, and cows, for example – because they are useful or because they flatter us. But spiders and salamanders, salmon and sunflowers are equally our brothers and sisters.”

I feel this is unfair on the lynx. Those humans concerned made a judgement without knowing the full facts. The lynx may have been protecting its young from the dog, if it had any young. Also, what did the dogs owner think they were doing by allowing their dog to attack the lynx!

Ahhh that's so sad..the thing is take into account that humans are taking over the Lynx's natural habitat and so when they turn up in the humans suburbia just doing their own thing.. only to be shot..it's not right..and if they keep shooting them they too will become extinct,and that will upset the eco system aye.
