We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Bird Dog ... That's a truly enchanting video in several ways. The Canadian Wildlife official is movie star good-looking and full of interesting facts and charming little asides. I've seen many wildlife films but few more convincing hosts. Loved it when he asked the scientist if he could keep just one of the three cubs, that he had tucked inside his jacket. I'm convinced that wildlife officials are indeed animal lovers.
They are attentive and careful with their polar bear population too. In Churchill, Manitoba, and other Canadian towns, the polar bears love to walk the streets and occupy the town dumps, because they really are omnivores and love to dine on the garbage we humans leave there. When they get too bothersome, the residents call the wildlife guys, who come and put them in the "polar bear jail" [don't ask me how but I'm sure it is gently]. When enough of the bears are accumulated in the jail, the Government brings in helicopters equipped with slings and takes them far enough away from the town that they don't find their way back for awhile.
That's a touching example of interspecies protection, isn't it? Anyway, take a look at the video
