You shouldn't. Trophy hunting tends to dumb down the population and removes the healthiest and most genetically applicable members of a species. Natural predators always pick off the weak and sick which is what keeps those populations healthy, and why our version of the "culling of the herd" does a poor job by comparison.

Some birds are very intelligent. Ravens and crows may be as smart as great apes. They have been documented using tools. This is something only seen in great apes. Crows have been seen dropping nuts onto cross walks and waiting for cars to run over them. They then fly down and eat the nuts.

I really doubt that mountain lion picture is real. It looks shoppy. Photoshopped that is. The outline of the lion where the hunters are sitting looks off. I use to use photoshop a lot, it's not hard. The lion looks as big as an African one.

I think there's little doubt that birds are intelligence. The way they religiously aim for my car, let's me know they are some black humored bastards.

Be careful with a dog around moose. Wolves are it's natural predator. Moose sees a dog, it thinks wolf. Your with the dog, so your part of the "pack". Definitely don't wan't a horse sized critter with antlers, pissed at you.

Seen many animals walking around Banff...




Walking through a provincial park near my house, turned a corner and... MOOOOO lol




On our way to said provincial park, about 10 mins from the house this little guy goes trotting across the road and the proceeds to frolic in a pond for a few mins!




This is a regular occurrence in Banff.










Not sure if it's salt these guys are after? But they DON'T MOVE... You drive around them.






These little buggers are all over Alberta.

The big horned sheep are like that in Colorado too.

I have seen them on Loveland Pass late in the spring driving to or from Arapahoe Basin. I have seen mountain goats chilling on the road too. Be careful on that pass. I have also seen giant rocks and even a snowboard on that road.

This mountain goat wanted to eat my lunch. He creeped up on us eating lunch up on MT Quandary.



He got super close. This is the best wildlife photo I ever took. I was using a shitty point and shoot camera.

Thanks. Nature and wildlife photography is the other thing I like to do. My profile picture is another one.
