South African Kevin Richardson is awesome with Lions and Hyenas, give them their habitat!

Ban hunting: The population of lions has dropped from about 350,000 to an estimated 25,000 during a fifteen-year-span. Lion hunts in South Africa garners more than 90 million dollars a year. Between September 2006-September 2007, 16,394 foreign hunters (more than half of whom fly from the U.S.) killed 46,000+ animals. Trophy hunting is worth $91.2 million a year and foreign tourists sometimes pay up to $40,000 to shoot a lion. The government supports hunting because of this revenue and the provincial governments sell permits to kill rhinoceroses, lions, elephants, and giraffes. 1,050 lions were killed in 2008.

+Nicolay Doytchev I looked up those sentences and came up empty of scientific studies for what you claim. Care to share your sources? Just to clarify: whatever helped us develop our big brains thousands of years ago (most likely the discovery of cooking, not meat consumption) is in any case linked to a completely different world than the one we are living now. We also spent thousand of years killing each others with rocks and stones. Should we continue to do that too? Find me a source that links low red meat consumption to lower IQs and we can have a real discussion. By the same logic that says that red meat was the element that developed our brains we could expect carnivores to be terribly intelligent animals. Which shows that correlation does not imply causation.

All asian cultures consume red meat now, though still significantly less that western countries per capita. Decades or hundreds of years ago this was absolutely not the case. Do you argue that those civilizations had "lower IQs" than their European counterparts who did consume meat?

"Unfortunately you are unlikely to find scientific studies for that, due to obvious reasons." Are those obvious reasons that such scientific studies do not exist?

Copy/paste spot-on comment  by Al Kinley (Wordpress comment):

We still skin creatures and bind books in their skin today – just not usually humans'. It’s pretty barbaric.

Think wearing wool doesn't hurt sheep?

+Gabriel Perren I have seen too many things from PETA where they flagrantly misrepresent facts to push their agenda (which in general I do agree with; no one should like the mistreatment of animals). Add to that the hypocracy of their atrocious kill record of animals they have accepted into their care (which is on public record) and I just don't have any respect for the methods they employ to address an otherwise worthy cause.
