HaHaHaHaHa… Good to see, I’ve never considered hunting a sport, think about it, you use a high powered rifle with a scope to kill some poor creature and call it ‘sport’?… if you did the same thing to another human, it would be murder.
OK, I know that there are circumstances where you have to cull certain animals for various reasons. In Australia for instance, feral pigs, cats, dogs, dear, buffalo, goats and camels can cause enormous damage to our delicate Aussie bush and our farms, and I’m all for shooting programs, either to bring down their numbers or even to wipe them out, to protect that delicate bush.
We also have situations where the Kangaroos end up in plague proportions; largely because we have changed the balance, and we have to kull them. Now don’t get me wrong here, I have no problem with this culling, in fact I’m some what pissed off when a bunch of bleeding harts try to stop these culls… sort of a save Skippy thing.
I’m also pissed off when these same people, protest at Kangaroos being ‘farmed’… because “You can’t eat our national symbol.” Well yes you can, the Aboriginals have for some 60,000 years or more. It’s also one of the healthiest meats having very low cholesterol and having the advantage that they do less harm to the bush than Beef… we should be farming them.
But killing for pleasure, no I’m sorry but I’m not happy with that. By the way, did you know that another reason given for the Kangaroo and the Emu being on our crest is because they can’t take a step backwards… an Australian trait all but gone in the last 30 years. Hears another fact. In every conflict that Aussie military personnel were involved in, it was our boys who were the first to win battles amongst the allies.

My musical tastes are for the most part Rock, but this piece of bluegrass, performed by Earl Scruggs and friends, obviously talented and very experienced musicians, I really like… hope you do too.
Now whilst on the topic of music I like, I have to say I hate Country and Western! They can take there sorry stories of lost love, their dog dying, being out on the prairie, being God fearing and they can also take their huge hats and belt buckles and stuff it.
Boy do I hate Country and Western, and the inane conservatism sooo much that in my last few operations to repair some injuries, just prior to being put under, I told the anesthetist. “I hate Country and Western.” Taken aback and possibly not sure what he’d heard, he said “Beg your pardon? I told him, “Just in case, my last words will be, I hate Country and Western.” He then burst out laughing and told me he was a musician and he understood.

You got to love some of the Photoshop stuff you see on the Net.
I remember seeing a movie once where a guy attempted to pick up a Shar-Pei and ended up with a hand full of lose skin… with the dog still on the floor.
Though I don’t remember which movie it was, I do remember the actor saying “There’s enough for two dogs in here!”. This feature bred into these dogs; for those who don’t know, is what made the Japanese Shar-Peis such good fighting dogs.
If for instance in a fight; and I do not approve at all of Dog Fights, if a Pitbull grabbed a Shar-Pei around the neck, the Shar-Pei would just swivel around in it’s skin and grab the surprised attacking dog around it’s neck and the fight would generally be all but over.

What a great shot.
Being human means there is always someone who will love to see you. Your dog is one… or if you don’t have a dog, perhaps someone else’s.
If your really desperate for companionship, almost any cat will treat you as a friend… as long as you feed it and pat it.
Then there’s the occasional bird; though I can’t see why if you lock them up in cages.
Whales & Dolphins too seem to like people, for reasons that are hard to explain, since we kill them and are poisoning their habitat.
There’s about 500 trillion of the planets flies & mosquitoes who are always happy to see you.
A few carnivores such as the big cats, Polar & Grizzly bears would be happy to see you should you venture into their habitat.
Last but not the least, if your lucky enough to come to Australia, but stupid enough to go swimming in certain areas of the Northern Territory or Northern Queensland, our ‘Salties’ (saltwater crocodiles) will be very pleased to see you as well.

Video: Yellow Pages via YouTube
This Australian Yellow Pages ad would have to be one of my favourite of all time. It follows the misfortune of a few tradesmen working on a clients house.
A painter is just putting the finishing touches to a client’s house as she is leaving for work. The client’s dog bonnie stays with the painter. As the tradesman steps off his ladder the dog runs by and knocks the ladder down and in doing so breaks off a set of wall mounted speakers.
The painter then looks at the yellow pages for an electrician, who comes to fix the speakers. The electrician says that the whole wiring to the speaker will need to be fixed and as he pulls the wire out he upsets a nest of wasps.
The two tradesmen then use the yellow pages to call a pest expert, he comes around, however the dog is also attacked by the wasps, so the three tradesmen then call Robbins Veterinary Clinic and as you will see in the video this is where it gets funny.

Dog Pack Attacks Gator In Louisiana.
This is amazing and needs to be seen to be believed.
“At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.”
“The alligator, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally considered the ‘apex predator’, can still fall victim to implemented ‘team work’ strategy, made possible due to the tight knit social structure and ‘survival of the pack mentality’ bred into the canines.”
“See the remarkable photograph courtesy of Nature Magazine. Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the gator preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of the gator.”
