Fuck faggot sheep farmers. Large predators in Britain now.
>>
>>4795907
Good stuff. Fuck sheep farmers. Messed up australlia too.
Although, more important than bringing them back is to protext the ones that are already there.
The wolves in the states are being killed so fast that they are piping coyotes
>>
>>4795912
Problem here
Sheep farmers are unironically far more important to society than american cattle ranchers

The cattle ranchers complaints boil down to entitlement - they want to maintain a dated profession just because they want to. What they do is not important to society. Cattle ranching was superseded by CAFOs ages ago and nearly 99% of our foodstock is now in CAFOs. Rather than ranching on pasture, the pasture is used to grow crops so some of that biomass (especially the inedible stalks and leaves) can be diverted to the CAFOs. Then manure from the CAFOs is distributed to the croplands. This is actually a tremendously useful arrangement because we can get more food for humans out of the arrangement than we could by ranching cattle on arable land, use just enough manure to fertilize that land, and non-arable land can be used to build CAFOs. Thank you based fossil fuels and electricity for making the logistics of it possible. There's some animal suffering complaints to be made but who fucking cares. Only humans have souls.

The british sheep farmers, on the other hand, produce a significant amount of wool. You can just not eat beef. It's shit meat, it either does nothing or makes you less healthy and raises your estrogen levels. If you switch to a beef free diet and just eat poultry and fish you will live longer and stay in peak athletic condition for an extra decade. Big deal. But what are you going to do without wool? Wear plastic? Yeah have fun with that. "I would rather wear plastic than wool" - nobody. And sheep do not adapt well to CAFOs specifically because they produce so much wool. They'd be too dirty 24/7 to manage and the death rate would be nigh unprofitable.
>>
>>4795912
Can wolves and coyotes even have babies?
>>
>>4795922
lol wool is incredibly unprofitable, nobody gets sheep to sell wool. there's no market for it.
vast majority of modern clothing isn't made out of wool nowadays, it only accounts for 1% of all clothing https://www.commonobjective.co/article/what-are-our-clothes-made-from#:~:text=The%20source%20of%20synthetic%20fibres,%2C%20acrylic%2C%20polypropylene%20and%20elastane.
>>
>>4795922
ranchers should just stop being miser and fence their area
>>
>>4795922
Dude are you retarded? Clothes are mostly made from synthetic polymers like polyester, or if they specifically need natural materials for those organic types then cotton always supersedes wool. Wool is a largely bygone product that acts more as a pseudoluxury item for people who can't afford silk.
>>
Rewilding is a scheme to get rid of private land ownership.
>>
>>4795922
got any resources on that, or is it speculation?
I think there are a lot more people eating pork, beef, chicken, and fish than sheep.
>>4795957

>>4795989
maybe private landowners should stop being bitches and insisting nature needs to die to protect their shitty pets

do something productive. work in medicine or education. we literally have too much food and eat about 10x more meat than we should (unless we stop eating carbs as a civilization but that aint happenin)
>>
>>4795989
Ok. And?
>>
>>4795922
>Wear plastic? Yeah have fun with that.

This sentiment isn't based in any kind of reality.
British Wool hasn't been profitable since 2005; the fleece is typically thrown out these days and seen as a waste product. Most synthetic products are infinitely less expensive and more economical - despite the whole microplastics thing. Without wool sheep themselves aren't super profitable: Mutton is also the smallest consumed meat per capita in the UK with Beef, Poultry, Fish, and Pork, beating it out by a factor of almost *3-4. And in the case of poultry almost *10.

>The cattle ranchers complaints boil down to entitlement - they want to maintain a dated profession just because they want to. What they do is not important to society. Cattle ranching was superseded by CAFOs ages ago and nearly 99% of our foodstock is now in CAFOs.

This is 100% completely true though. This is absolutely true, but it's true for *every* meat (except Mutton for the reason you listed) industry: Beef, Poultry, and Pork, Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations are just so overwhelmingly *insanely* efficient.

So these Anons are correct'ish: >>4795912 >>4796015
Ranching is blatantly an upper-class hereditary hobby and not a serious profession; at worst they're larpers. They're not protecting food supply lines they're protecting "a way of life". They run an inherently uneconomical business model that: costs them money, doesn't efficiently produce food, doesn't cloth you, doesn't even make fertilizer, extirpates wildlife, and would unironically be better spent rewilding unarable land (keep in mind nothing I've said however is true for crops) or otherwise turning it into parks.

With that said: >>4795989
Some of what this Anon is saying is true, especially in America. If you're going to be buying land from Ranchers it doesn't solve anything to give it to some fucking cunt like Blackrock or Chink company so they can pollute it or develop it and print out an "IOU one(1) Environment".

Lynx couldn't compete with house cats and were in some cases even literally out fucked from their gene pool by Tom cats. Wolves were killed off by farmers with dogs that could outbreed and overwhelm them in numbers during wolf hunts because wolves were no longer an apex within their niche and died off accordingly.

The only people who care about bringing them back are megafauna retards who can't appreciate the natural wildlife they have now; husky/wolf fags that have a 2 terabyte hardrive of illegal pornagraphy they have saved off from telegram; turbo autist catfags who find a normal cat boring and want to have a domesticated "exotic" wild cat and instead.

The Wolf and Lynx can stay being a genetic dead end. Reintroduction will only lead to then being killed of again by scottish or welsh farmers who are some of the least law abiding citizens if they think their area's local culture or status quo is under threat. These guys get hostile when an English man moves into their village or town, imagine how much shit is going to hit the fan when a wolf is spotted off of a local field. Imagine how fucked a lynx would be when a bunch of big cheeked toms spot it alone in some nearby woods off a farmers cottage, you want a cat rendition of Deliverance? Because that is how you get a xat rendition of Deliverance.

I want to support this but it’s been such a dramatic problem here in the states I can’t help but shake my head. I like wolves. I want them on the landscape. But they are such a toxic issue that it’s simply not worth it. Wolfaboo pseudo environmentalists are the absolute biggest hysterical liars and cunts in the entire conservation movement. The millions that have been pissed away to reintroduce and protect wolves in places where they were already coming back naturally for free is laughable, every pet or stock animal killed was denied and lied about for over a decade, when they finally hit their population goals millions more were pissed away in lawsuits that ignored the science and artificially raised those goals multiple times after the fact, every single negative impact they had on the land scape such as pushing elk out of the mountains and completely wiping out caribou was covered up and lied about, and here’s the thing bongs. You fucking know it will be worse for you. I sincerely believe that the asshurt, tea sipping, lip curling, dead empire you live in is run by such incompetent, spineless, cucks that even when a toddler gets snatched off a playground they will cover it up just like they do with Muslims. For fucks sake you can’t even delist badgers after they’ve eaten just about every hedgehog in Britain and spread TB to your cattle. And the most frustrating thing for me is that this shit really shouldn’t be so hard.
>Make a plan
>Identify where they can most easily reintegrate

No one said to stop eating meat. You have schizophrenia. All anon said was we eat 10x more meat than we should, which is true.
Overconsumption of meat is the issue, not the act of farming or meat-eating itself. The reality is we could eat meat 2 or so times a week and be healthier than we are now. But no, rightoids have to scream and bitch about muh rightsss.
You want to eat meat 7x a week? Farm it yourself. If you have any amount of outside space you can farm quail or rabbits. Literally no one is stopping you.

Nah they'll blame it on a Muslim even when video footage shows a white man. That's just how spineless and sniveling and cowardly they are, they'd rather bow to the most low-iq racist Norf FC bloke than grow a fucking spine. That's literally why brexit even happened.
>"don't cull badgers, cull tories"
Haha based. I believe in badger culls but if I had 5 London bin knives and had to choose between 5 Tories and 5 badgers the Tories are all getting stabbed behind Tescos.

Anyway any rewilidning attempts in the UK will be moot. Pretty much all of our land is private and the stuff that isn't up in Scotland already has such a fragile ecosystem that adding anything big to it could fuck it all up. Farmers arent giving up their land further south just so you can throw some lynx in there.

I'm all for supporting British farmers but they kind of showed their complete and utter stupidity when most of them voted for brexit out of spite after the whole madcow fiasco that happened years ago, despite everyone with half a brain telling them that brexit would be especially harmful for farmers, and guess what happened? Farmers are struggling extra hard and now need extra compensation from the government, which is the literal socialism these conservitards desperately don't want, because they refuse to just pick up a book or listen to the smarter people around them.

Farmers would cut entire treelines boarding their crops just to get a few cents more of revenue out of their harvest, and leave poisonous bites for animals whenever a wolf attack a single sheep out of their 500k flock.
Poltards still worship them for some reason, maybe because they look like salt of the earth trad and based for them, ignoring the fact that farmers regilarly sell all their clay for land development and cheap housing whenever the market fluctuates, so that they can live their life downtown shopping with their ferraris.

I'm going to drop a little red pill that will piss everyone off.

The whole reason for this "we have to introduce predators to populated areas" is chickens coming home to roost due to hunter propaganda. For centuries hunters have lobbied local leaders to shill their satanic propaganda that killing animals for fun is "good for Nature" because all the predators just happened to have disappeared somehow (don't ask who did it, please).

Well, eventually when you argue in bad faith and spread deceitful propaganda, some people will take you at your word. This is what has happened with megacarnivore reintroduction propaganda. People realized they could cut out the hunter middle man and just reintroduce the predators. Problem is, most predators were eliminated because they're a literal existential threat to human populations (not that I give a fuck). Humorously, ALL of this propaganda is a house of lies. Megacarnivores don't actually control megaherbivore populations. The largest megaherbivores are basically immune from predation. Megacarnivores don't actually serve a useful function to Nature anymore than botflies or leeches do. And no, parasites are not "necessary" in Nature either. Most modern human "understanding" (foolishness) regarding ecology is based on religious and propagandistic beliefs, not fact. Nature doesn't exist to be in harmony and not every species is good for the environment. Some are more useful than others and apex predators are down there with tape worms for how useful they are to the natural environment. When you remove them from the environment, megaherbivores slightly increase their numbers with minimal vegetation changes. When you remove megaherbivores from the environment, entire plant species and communities collapse because herbivores are vital seed dispersers.

All (((western))) "ecology" is lies meant to serve lobbying groups.

>>4810582
Studies in the failure of park management that is Yellowstone are widely disreported to spread even further propaganda. Yellowstone is an absolute fucking trainwreck and should be in the training manual for ecologists as a prime example of what NOT to do. Yes, we all saw your jewtube "wolves changed the rivers" propaganda. The part of the story all the propagandists left out is Yellowstone's elk population did NOT have a significant impact on plant populations (patches of small woody shrubs were missing and floral undergrowth in what passes for "forests" at Yellowstone were slightly different and lower). Not only that, but the wolves quickly fucked everything up. They caused the elk population to plunge, mostly by just scaring them off, then they got mange and started killing people's livestock and pets and now they're a perpetual threat to the local human population. They fixed nothing because there was no problem to fix.

Most economically important livestock are kept in feedlots, not roaming on pasture, so they are fenced in and protected. You consider yourselves a first world country. How about you just fence your hobby farm in better?
>They will kill off the deers and boars that otherwise could be hunted to feed people.
Hunting is unable to feed a significant amount of people. It is a hobby for rich people that want to kill stuff.
>They will murder our innocent cats and dogs.
Not if you keep them leashed and in your fucking yard, they won't.
>They may kill some hikers.
You are statistically safer in an area with 10,000 wolves than you are in an area with 1,000 dark skinned men. Humans are apex predators.
>They will murder our children on their way to school.
See above. If it's such a concern and safety is paramount in decision making, start a white supremacist regime. Crime rates will plummet. This is a fact that has never been disproven. An ethnically homogenous country, and a country free of africans, is always safer than a diverse country or any country with africans in it. ALWAYS. No amount of socio-economic status cope has ever been proven - the blacks get richer, and they just get better at not getting caught fighting pitbulls, trafficking underage thai prostitutes, and selling/doing drugs. Besides, we know that a grand total of 30 children in the UK walk to school through the wilderness and only because their parents are dumb micks who are too drunk to drive them.

>Predators were never meant to have large populations in the first place
the problem is that predators need a lot of space for one individual in order to be supported.
the average population desity of most mega carnivores is like 1 per 100k sq miles
So one mega predator needs 100k sq miles in order to survive.
Problem is humans also need land and predators keep losing habitation to the ever expanding human race
My suggestion is to give mega predators super intellect so that they can become like us and claim territory away from humans in a political fashion.
Furries will become real
>>
>>4811116
nvm I its 100 sq km. So roughly 38 sq mi
>>
So the theory is, in a few years time mega carnivores will be phased out in favor of medium sized carnivores than can survive off of anything.
Lynx that kill anything from Deer to small rodents will remain extant will mega predators will go extinct due to the pressure of modern humanity becoming like China, Europe and India an overpopulated bug man shit hole with nothing but densly packed cities and farms in sighf

Predators are REQUIRED for nature to function. Parasites my ass. They’re the immune system. Herbivores will gladly reduce the earth to a sterile rock given free reign. They evolved to do nothing but eat fuck and die. If you think you found a predator free area you missed the birds.

Oh and parasites are also essential. They’re the precursor stage of immune system function. They weaken the disease (herbivores) so the hunter killer cell (carnivore) can return it to basic soil components (feces) and then they terminate the predator after so many removals.

Plant eaters are a literal plague. Nature is begging for them to be killed off. The laws of probability and thermodynamic require that the majority of the planet has predators and parasites or it will become batten rock.
Fun fact: herbivory is what made humans an invasive species. Without domesticated crops they’re GREAT for the planet. WE are the natural predator of megaherbivores.
>>
>>4811154
herbivores are fascinatingly stupid

>>
>>4811145
the problem is humanity moves on
and there will be many more extinct mega fauna. 2100 there will be 9 billion humans 2200 there will be 18 billion
in 2300 there will be 36 billion humans and it will keep expanding until there are no more forests to cut down, no more deserts to terraform
and most importantly no more fresh water.
each human and humanity as a whole consumes way more water than the average animal
the future is ecocide and mass starvation of humanity
the only "wild" areas left will be game preserves made for rich hunters

Actually, due to plummeting birth rates across the world it’s unlikely the global population will surpass far beyond 9 billion and could well be in decline by the end of the century. Pic related, it’s not just Europe and East Asia with sub-replacement fertility as now Latin America, South-East Asia, even some Middle Eastern states like Iran & Turkey have fallen to below 2.1 TFR or nearly have over the last 20 years. Even fertility rates in most African states are starting to fall, it’s only Niger and Afghanistan that have actually had any consistent increase in their fertility rate this decade. There is basically no fix for this so far either, pretty much every policy attempt at increasing birth rates in countries with sub-replacement birth rates like tax-breaks, generous maternity policies, or welfare allowances has only at best slowed the decline. Unless we resort to something wacky like religious fundamentalism (which doesn’t always work - see Iran’s birth rate) or growing babies in vats the human population won’t be expanding significantly more this century.

Shrinking populations mean shrinking standards of living unless no one retires and productivity can increase endlessly. Which it won't.
>>
>>4796488
WTF is this real???
>>
>>4811643
What kike told you this bullshit? You've mistaken the GDP and fractional reserve banking scams for the standard of living.

A shrinking population means that technological progress gets centered on the military and a taxpayer funded medical sector, and consumer tech stalls hard. Repairability and heirloom status comes back. Consumerism dies. However, your standard of living would be quite good. Education and healthcare systems would be less burdened, and better supported.

New construction of homes would slow. There would not be enough for people to leave the nest immediately. Multi-generational living would come back. Food production would slow somewhat, requiring all people with land to pitch in and raise livestock and for waste to be reduced significantly. Life would change but would it get worse? Maybe if your happiness depends on replacing your car, home, phone, PC, camera, and shoes on a monthly basis and eating whatever you wanted rather than what would grow near you. That would become impossible. Veganism would be impossible except for equatorial fucks in the few fertile areas left by climate change.

There is one thing that would have go away to forestall a crisis, and that would be the idea that all people are equal and should be able to do whatever they want. To prevent societal collapse, you would be sorted by innate ability and your career would be pre-selected. You would not have the illusion of freedom or equality. Dumb people would be required to be laborers. Smart people would be forced into the state run healthcare and tech sectors. Smart sociopaths would be forced into the state itself. You would not be allowed to waste your potential or anyones time being bad at your career or not selecting the career society needed to fuck off and be an "artist" just because you wanted to, unless you could fit it in between required activities.
