  •  Indpendent of ranching (0+ / 0-)

    Public and private incentives to capture or kill last relics of fading species (you brought up rhinos earlier, I mentioned Great Auk eggs in the diary) have a long history of happening.

    I once did a cartoon. The punch line was "Short Endangered Species and Make a Killing."

    Worship of scarcity is as much a killer as lust for carnage, profit and simple reaction to the presence of a peer competitor at/near the top of the food chain.
