Washington Town Being Overrun By Rabbits?
Yes, we all love rabbits, but who knew what trouble they could get into when there's enough of them in one place? This is the plight of Langley, Washington, a town on the coast of Whidbey Island that has recently come across quite the overpopulation problem. The problem has especially hit the local school budget pretty hard, as rabbits burrowed so many holes into a middle school football field that it has been rendered unusable. According to Brian Miller, facilities director of the South Whidbey School District: "There is feces everywhere, and there are some illnesses that can be carried and transmitted. Every day there are new holes, and the ones we've filled in are dug out, again." Langley has always been known to have a particularly high population of wild rabbits. In fact, it is perhaps one of their largest tourism drawing points. However, it has recently gotten to a point where the overpopulation is causing tremendous damage. Residents have complained of the rabbits digging up their gardens, pooping virtually everywhere there's grass, and creating nests all over their properties. One resident even said he had over one hundred wild rabbits born on his property in the span of a year. (A self-service rabbit maternity ward, Langley. You has it.) Mayor Fred McCarthy has heard his residents, and while he doesn't believe in eradicating the population entirely, he does think lessening the amount is an obviously good plan. "I don't think we're going to get into the business of trapping and euthanizing rabbits. I don't think that would go over well in Langley. I'm not into killing animals for no reason." Some solutions the city has considered is hiring a falconer to help increase the amount of the rabbit's natural predators in the community. They are also considering relocating some. The school district is also working to raise $60,000 for a protective fence. So now I want to know: How would you fix Langley's overpopulation problem? Should residents be able to shoot or trap rabbits on their property, or do you like the idea of using hawks to create a balance?
Children who grow up with pets become more sensitive and sympathetic adults!
Contact with animals gives children a greater sense of responsibility, enhances empathy and increases their understanding of the cycle of life. But Why? Several studies show how children who live with pets have a more developed emotional intelligence (EI), i.e. the ability of effectively understand, manage, and express one’s feelings and interpreting those of others. This is considered to be a key factor for a better quality of life. Unlike the intelligence quotient (IQ), which experts consider to be unalterable, the emotional intelligence can progress with time, through practice. Animals can help children do this. Here are the benefits our four-legged friends can have on our kids. 1. Empathy Children living with pets early learn to take care and feed another creature, initially by observing their parents, storing up all elements they will use in every future interaction with animals. Several studies demonstrate that children who own pets feel more empathy towards other people and animals. 2. Self-esteem Taking care of animals necessarily entails responsibilities, which give children a sense of personal fulfilment and help them feeling independent and competent. Nienke Endenburg and Ben Baarda, authors of the book The Waltham Book of Human–Animal Interaction, reports an experiment in which children with low self-esteem showed great progresses after they spent 9 months with a pet in their classroom. 3. Cognitive development Spending time with pets can ease the acquisition of language and improve oral competences in children. They don’t only play with animals, but also talk to them and often read stories in their presence. Moreover, “conversing” with animals helps children fighting stutter. 4. Stress reduction Animals offer a unique emotional support, and are able to weaken negative feelings. During a research children were asked to tell who they would talk to if they find themselves in a spot, and most of them mentioned their own pets. Effectively, we often feel unconditionally supported by them, whilst other people would judge and criticise certain situations. What do you think?
