What do you mean?…. you may be asking.
Let me first share this quote by Al Cambronne in his book Deerland: America’s Hunt for Ecological Balance and the Essence of Wildness
“When we purposely manipulate the population levels of a single species, especially deer, it means we are tampering with every other moving part of entire ecosystems all across the landscape.”
He speaks of deer, but there is another large herbivore whose numbers have been manipulated by our society ~ cows. When the landscape of our American west is taken over by this species, carnivores like Coyotes will continue to be persecuted and our Wild Mustangs will continue to have their freedom taken from them by means of the violent BLM roundups via helicopter.
These two species suffer and die because of beef.
If you eat beef, where do you get it from ~ your local small farm or an unknown source.
