The Importance Of Keeping The Wild Animal Population

Good Essays
Hunters help keep the wild animal population down to prevent overrunning the people in the United States. They keep us safe from the predators in the wild by keeping their population down so they do not need to move into any cities to find food. They can stay in the wild areas like forests, woods and, any other areas that humans are not currently populating. By keeping predator population down hunters will help keep us safe from all the dangerous animals in the wild.

They live in remote areas of North America and Eurasia. If they ever became overpopulated they could very easily kill a ton of people, since there would be too many of them to handle. It would be hard for the human race to kill the wolves again if they are killing humans. Yes, the wolves would help us keep the deer population down but many people rely on the deer meat to survive because they do not have the money to buy food for their families. Also while hunters are hunting for food, they do not want to worry about watching for wolves. Wolves can steal the hunter’s deer that they kill or they will just go for the hunter and kill him or her. Wolves hunt in packs so the hunter or hunters would have no chance of escaping these wolves unless they get lucky and something scares them off. These animals are carnivores but some people have seen wolves eating plants. So, wolves are not a huge problem toward the environment, but they would be toward humans if they became overpopulated. Small towns would be in danger if they were either surrounded or near woods or any forest, if the wolves had an overpopulated population, because the wolves would raid the town, killing any animals including humans and livestock that those …show more content…

    Packs of coyotes are especially dangerous, and are capable of taking down a fully grown deer. While single coyotes are still a threat to deer, it would be rare for one to attempt a task such as trying to kill a fully grown buck. According to a study about coyotes and fawns,“ Fruit was the only food item in the coyote diet more important than fawns during the fawning season” (Kilgo 5). Often a lone coyote will go after the fawns of a doe, or a yearling. If predators are a problem in an area, lack habitat will be a deciding factor for survival.…

    The purpose of Mowat's study is to determine the truth about wolves. Unfortunately, the only trustworthy sources in this book are Eskimos, who live among wolves. Anything else, including Mowat, is oftentimes untrustworthy. Another scene that shows that wrong judgment can be made because of influence is when Mowat discovers the truth about the killing of the caribou. Mowat finds that human hunters are actually responsible for taking out the caribou, not the wolves.…

    Party hunters are not increasing the number of deer they are decreasing the numbers at a high and fast rate. If the party hunters at least set up a sanctuary for the deer and had a crop for them to survive in it would help the least amount for them. If party hunting was banned it would help regrow our declining numbers of deer in Minnesota.

If the animals are hunted, shot, and put to their death faster and less miserably then any diseases would. Overpopulation when there is lack of food like the wolves have right now with all their food sources migrating will cause starving and a slow and painful death. The lack of food will also cause fighting between members of the wolf pack.

    The Importance of Hunting The majority of our society does not understand the importance of the act of hunting. Hunting keeps the wildlife population at equilibrium between their natural lifestyle and our civilization to aid agricultural farmers.

The truth of the matter is that hunting is a major part of protecting wildlife from overpopulation, disease, and overgrazing farm land. Though that’s not all, a species could starve to death if the population is not at a steady level.…
