Why do people get so pissed off at animal abuse when its a dog or a cat? But when something like rattlesnake roundups have been going on for years nobody says shit. I mean really the fucking DNR does not even regulate this shit.

because nobody gives a fuck about those little satans slitherin around except your confused soft ass

I bet more people care about these snake then about you.

Because dogs and cats are common household pets, and therefore are held in higher regard than rattlesnakes, a wild (and dangerous) animal.

lol but I thought you said nobody says shit...face it you are alone on this and always will be.

Still does not make it fucking right in fucking genocide on a animal for no reason the animal is not invasive it not a pest it make no sense to kill them.
>>
>>569134270
Round-ups are a sport. Sports are entertainment. Entertainment makes money.

Banning rattlesnake round-ups is like banning the hunting of deer or similar animals. Such a right is protected under national law.
>>
>>
OHHH WHACKING DAY, OHH WHACKING DAYYY
>>
>>569134653
Hunting is regulated if people want to go out and kill a rattlesnake they should be free to do it but rounding up thousands of them makes no fucking sense. plus we have little data on there numbers and the gasoline they poor on the rattlesnake dens is toxic and may persist for a while.

because dogs and cats have basically evolved over the course of human civilization to be companions, rattlesnakes are venomous pests

good, fuck these nasty little fucks, they'er deadly and give me the weebie geebies. also i fucking hate retards that own snakes and shit and act as if they'er as smart and as capable of the same love and affection for it's owner as a dog or a cat.
>>
>>569134967
Hunting a single rattlesnake, unlike larger animals, is illogical due to what the snakes are actually used for. For example, you can't really make any clothes from only one, and it doesn't provide much food.

It makes sense because it serves several industries. And the quotas were only introduced somewhat recently. The only remaining issue, I think, is the ethics of the whole thing. But ethics = loss of profit, and no-one cares enough for a potentially deadly animal to kill it humanely.
>>
>>569133013
because people are idiots with no sense of morals other than what they've been taught by society
>>
>>569135149
There are alot more humane ways to get rid of a pest like traps and repellents. You don't see people going rounding up thousands of raccoons.
>>569135546
I really dont have a problem with people hunting them for food or anything I fucking deer hunt when I its just there is no restrictions on it thats what really gets me. If they would meet a quota or some sort of limit that would sufficient for a lot of people who share my opinion its just the unregulated hunting of these animal will most certainly lead to their endangerment.

I kill rattlesnakes on a weekly basis on my family's property.

1) Rattlesnakes are pests
2) Rattlesnakes are venomous pests
3) Rattlesnakes are venomous pests that kill/eat chickens, cats, dogs, and can bite your kids

With the drought, rattlesnake are getting more invasive and desperate, and are coming into homes and on busy property. Kill as many as you can find, prevent an accident in the future.

It's really not that complicated retard.
People are more willing to empathize with animals that show loyalty or personality traits.
Especially when they've actually owned them.
I don't agree with any animal abuse, but people don't see rattle snakes as pets, they seem them as vermin that will kill a human, which we obviously value the life of more than a snake.
It's not hard, please think before you ask such obvious questions.

This shouldn't be something up for debate. Cats and dogs show affection to their human owners. Just 30 minutes ago my cat creeked into my room and jumped on my bed and onto my chest. Well, he lays half on me and half on the bed, he's a giant friend. but he does this often and he purrs as loud as my playstation 3. snakes are cold blooded animals incapable of affection:(

FROM YOUR SOURCE:

"Experts disagree as to whether this claim is true or false. Steve Reaves, owner of Tucson Rattlesnake Removal in Arizona, says it's true. Some rattlesnakes have stopped rattling for one simple reason, he told Associated Press in July 2010: to avoid being killed by humans. Those born with a genetic predisposition to stay quiet have a better survival rate wherever they come into contact with people, Reaves explained. Jerry Feldner of the Arizona Herpetological Association agrees, as does herpetologist Daryl Sprout of Dallas, who told KLTV 7 News in Tyler, Texas that "natural selection is already beginning to prefer snakes that do not bring attention to themselves and therefore draw incoming fire from humans." Also in agreement with the general proposition is Gene Hall of the Texas Farm Bureau, though he, like the author of the message above, attributes the behavioral change to the threat posed by snake-eating feral hogs, not people."

Mostly because snakes kill more people than a well-trained dog. The badly trained dogs are rounded up, and people get upset because dogs normally do nothing but love you.

linguistics and speech pathology were the other masters.

environmental biology is a large part of the forestry program here.

better than a BA in psychology.

the fact is that we aren't talking about a single generation, and not all behaviors are learned.

snakes have been dealing with increasing encroachment for hundreds of years.

this includes natives. they weren't always around the southwest, you know.

OP, are you retarded? Seriously.

Cats and dogs are sweet and adorable companions who give as much love as they get.

Rattlesnakes don't give a fuck except to inject you with poison to put you in the ground and swallow your dog or cat. The world does not need rattlesnakes. We could kill every last one of them and improve the world for every living creature, especially the humans. However, most humans cannot live without the companionship that a dog or cat provides. And if you've never had your own dog or cat, you do not understand. They become a part of your family because their very nature earns their way into your heart. Rattlesnakes want you to become part of their list of victims, perhaps their next meal. Fuck snakes.

and no, hardly irrelevant. behavioral and developmental and abnormal psychologies were all large parts of the speech pathology degree.

>Just that the majority are learned.

and that's a useless statement, anon. since we aren't talking about the majority of anything.

who says they are only now reducing their rattle rates? we don't have a litmus.

>evolution is static.

because environments change, anon. this is how i know you are still an undergrad student.

Doog & cats have good qualitys, rattle snakes are pissy cunts that will fuck you up for very little reason. Breed gopher snakes and garden snakes to curb rodents but kill all rattle snakes

if you are in a PhD program, you are a PhD candidate.

if you aren't a PhD candidate, you aren't in school for a PhD.

>they help keep mice and other pests down

Cats are natural mouse predators. Several dog breeds were created to hunt down and kill mice and other pests. Yorkies were literally made to kill mice and rats on farms and in barns. The world does not need snakes. The world is worse because of snakes.

you aren't a park ranger. park rangers don't "host" shitty events. you are just a part time/ volunteer who has dreams of going to school one day.

shut the fuck up already you hack.
>>
>>569144380
we don't host events we host the nature center we have at the park where people come in and we tell them about the park.

I've had dogs. Several of them. I have two dogs now. There was several years in between owning dogs where I had no dogs but only had two cats. I also owned two snakes. I had a ball python, the fucker was a nasty fuck. I gave it away to a friend. I got a sand boa. Fucker never moved. Laziest fucking thing wouldn't even kill its own prey. I had to kill the mice and leave the dead ones in the cage. Sometimes the snake ate it, sometimes it couldn't be bothered. It just wanted to sleep cured up in a corner. Dogs are awesome. Dogs are always up for whatever you want to do. Dogs bring the energy. Cats are cool too. Cats want maximum attention when they want it and then they just want to be alone. Cats love play time until they don't. Cats are like us. Sometimes we are ready to go, sometimes we just don't give a fuck.

we don't like to hurt animals that can show emotion apparently. A dog or cat can physically show that they're sad, while a snake can not.

>>569133013
Rattlesnakes are discriminated against simply because nature cursed them with an angry looking face.
It's okay to kill them because they're scary.

>It keeps the population down, and in California rattlesnakes have been acting up these past few years. I with the agree opinion that it's a blood sport that could be more humane, but I can't disagree with controlling the pest population.

Which part of california? I live in the bay area; should I be on the lookout?

>>569133013
Because snakes havnt been domesticated and evolved alongside humans in the sense of companionship. This is coming from someone who has owned everything from tarantulas to scorpions. Cats and dogs just share a bond with us that isnt the same as other species. Theres also plenty of fucking rattlesnakes, and theyre more then a threat to humans.
>>
>>569142925
Because theres horses roaming around fucking up peoples days right? This is more of a conversation about humans developing out into the dessert and coming into contact with the indigenous species. Also what is anti venom retard
