    At least you probably don't get those things they call fish flies here. They come out of the lake once a year in their millions, big as a Jack Russell and swallow sparrows whole. They frighten me so much that I stock up and stay in till there gone.
    Maybe not that big, but I'm glad we don't have them---

    Yep that's them, they stink the whole town up and gather in huge drift against the buildings.

    I hate them and they scare me so much, everyone here say they don't have mouths but i reckon they probably have huge sharp teeth and I am just too tasty to take the chance.

    They should arrive in the nest few weeks

    It takes an hour to mow my grass. Because the fish flies were in full swing I mowed the grass last year in a winter coat, winter ski gloves, my trousers tucked into my socks and a hat with a mosquito net over it.
    My neighbors were taking bets apparently over if I would finish the mowing before I passed out from heat exhaustion (it's really hot when they arrive, the air has been on for a few weeks already).

    We are all God's creatures! Some great, some small, but all living things have a right to live on the earth. At one time in my past, I held animal life in higher regard than human life. Animals don't butcher each other over religion and politics. Only humans.....

    I also love animals, I don't like creepy crawlies.

    Are you honestly saying you have never killed God's flies or spiders or gone fishing without releasing them back?

    Reason comes at a price.

    And I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from man's envy of his neighbor. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

    Yes I have. However, nowadays I try to think before I take the life of any living thing. This doesn't apply to a critical self defense situation though. I just rely on what my training has taught me. I will say this, the taking of a life is very easy (even humans). It's living with it afterwards that's not so easy.

    Also, if a person is hunting or fishing and harvests the meat to sustain their family, I don't have a problem with that. Even coyotes (natural born murders for pleasure) have a right to exist. After all, when you really think about it, we are encroaching upon their habitat.

    I agree with you to a point. The mistake you make (in my humble assessment) is a common one. You said, "After all, when you really think about it, we are encroaching upon their habitat."
    This presumes that the coyote has exclusive rights to the habitat which excludes not only Man but every other being down to the microscopic level. In reality we ALL share the habitat and until we ALL recognize that there will be imbalance.

    That's a lot further than I anticipated anyone taking it to, but I would agree with that assessment!
