Why? Why? Why? Is there a need to repeat what has already been done once before? Wipe out the buffalo to the point of extinction just because we can? In the 1800s big virile cowboys (yes, I'm being sarcastic) killed thousands of buffalo for sport - wasted them for no good reason and now it appears their descendants are once again doing the same thing because we have in power the same kind of thinkers: animal life (and perhaps human as well if we look at Iraq) is expendable and for our sporting pleasure-let's kill! There is no reason to kill this many buffalo. Shame on the Bush administration! Noted/Shared.
