i also agree with july. I hate to see hunters smiling on hunting photos with a dead bear.
We may go on killing all living beings, but when these living beings come kill us, they are wrong. Such as ticks and Borrelia, who now come to us in rage.
Now look at what ticks are about
: we have invaded THEIR territories (tick land) for centuries, cut their habitats off, killed the beasts that normally get bitten and carry Borrelia and other pathogens, and now, ticks come to humans, WHILE Borrelia and company are looking for new hosts because we killed most of them!!
It's hard to say who's guilty right? So i agree that continue to go on with our mode of living, hunting, destroying the hosts that usually should protect us against ticks and Borrelia is maybe not the smartest thing to do.
Buhner says that EXACTLY : it's not ticks and Borrelia only that come attack us: we first attacked both ticks and Borrelia, and they simply try to find new hosts, as we humans are in THEIR territory.
The same way we, humans, have the right to live, so other animals, including ticks, bears, deer, and Borrelia (not an animal, but part of our environment) also do.
This EXACT mentality of human superiority is one MAIN ELEMENT that caused us extreme trouble with lyme disease. It's not the opposite, meaning, nature attacking us.
So I do agree with Julie, that this human superiority mentality is not right, concerning lyme and the ecosystem. If we are in big trouble with lyme and coinfections, it is our 'human' fault TOO. Ask Buhner, he'll tell you that clearly.
