    You’re absolutely right, Ralph.
    Here in Pennsylvania, 45,000 or so whitetails are killed on the state’s roads/highways every year. But that’s just the state Game Commission’s estimate. No one knows the true extent of the carnage.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
