'Carnivorous Ballet' Helps Cheetahs Coexist With Lions

Offbeat  (tags: animals, environment, protection, wildlife )

- 575 days ago -
After humans, the lion is indisputably the top predator in Africa's Serengeti. Since the 1990s, the big cats have been regarded as serious threats to the survival of both cheetah and wild dog populations. But a new study reveals that cheetahs are more

Leave animals alone, because before humans intervention animals got along just fine!

I appreciate the sentiment, but many of these animals would be doomed if we DID leave them alone. Remember that even the animals who still live *in the wild* are really not living the natural life they enjoyed decades ago and that isn't going to change.
Yes, this is all man's fault ~ but the Garden of Eden isn't coming back. Besides, predators ate prey in the Garden and many species became extinct which is no different than what we're seeing now.

The problem with this study is an assumption that all predators MUST be sequestered into "parks." In many cases, they were never intended to occupy the same areas, and by forcing them to do so, of course wild dogs, which compete for game, can't get away and are decimated. We need to start developing wildlife corridors where animals can move more naturally.

I don't know what to think...It's a problem, but how would it actually be played out in nature without human intervention? And like Barbara says, nature is not what it was and is continually changes and it's laws change, and the results are changing with them.
