20. How did wild life ever survive before mankind came along?

What we did was to invade, take over and destroy their habitat. WE invaded their homes and then called them the pests.
Where we have big enough areas, as in national parks, for nature to regulate the numbers of the wildlife there, we have people wanting to be allowed to exploit the land, kill off the normal animals living on the land, so the land can be used for cattle, sheep, or plowed under for farming. Mining, drilling, filling it full of roads.
Old growth forest cut down just for the money, or for ranching, or farming. Most of the North-Eastern part of the United States used to be forest. You can't tell anymore all that land used to be heavily forested. It is farm land and cities now.
Leaving nothing for future generations and ignoring the making extinct of hundreds of thousands of species of plants and animals. Those that are left and and are hearty enough to survive in their new environment, we call them pests and wage war on them.
We are not even trying to live one with nature. Why? because we are too dumb, too ignorant, too arrogant a species, to realize we are every bit a part of nature as any other animal on this planet. We kill off nature, we die ourselves.

Hunting for food, is one thing. Hunting for something to hang on the wall is something else entirely.
