PETA. Fur. Wetlands. Environmentalism.

Nutria fur from rodents being killed to protect fragile native ecosystems being invaded by foreign species.
Ashley Byrne, of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), says fur is still fur.
"First of all, the nutria shouldn't be slaughtered like this, and secondly that's no excuse for parading around in their fur," she says firmly.

Get over yourself. If species A is illegally or unintentionally let out into a fragile ecosystem and begins to rapidly deteriorate it, then the problem needs to be dealt with. Economic progress. Preservation of environment - or at least gradual, natural change. Protecting native species for species diversity - you have no idea which one of thousands of threatened species will one day be the source of a cure for this or that or cancer. It is simply to humanity's advantage not to screw too much with local ecosystems, and have as many different animals and plants and insects as possible around to study, enjoy, hunt and eat.

So now that we have established that the local authorities have a right and a duty to investigate and deal with non-native species invasion effects - it's natural to ask what the heck to do with a bunch of animals you just culled. Killed. Murdered. Ethnically cleansed. Whatever you prefer to call it, PETA vegan nutheads. They're lying there rotting. Or we can take them off the authorities' hands and make use of them for human artistic value, fashion, economic progress, food, whatever. We'd be stupid not to.

Your unreasonableness just makes regular people like me more likely to say "Oh, the PETA crazies are at it again" whenever you do something. Now I'm even less likely to listen to anything you say.

Oh, and while we're at it I will try my best to never date a vegan ever again. Ugh.
