I understand having a working animal but does it make sense to have a “companion animal” do you think your dog or cat really loves you or are you their meal ticket? Worst of all mutts and cats infect humans with parasites which In turn make the humans more retarded and enslaved to their /best/friends are dogs and cats to humans what Israel is to America? Should we ban or regulate ownership of non working animals?

HOLY SHIT NICE

Why is any form of whaling legal. There is no legitimate justification for it anymore.

>muh tradition
Bullshit reason, if this was justified then cannibalism should also be legal.

>muh commercial
There are enough sources of meat on the planet to compensate for a "delicacy"

>muh science
If a whale has to die "for science" the number can be small, it doesn't require hundreds much less thousands

Japan is a barbaric shithole nation. They don't even eat whale anymore they just pay boomers to kill them and dump them back into the ocean.

>>
>>3874954
Pretty much this. The government doesn't want to give up whaling because there are communities in Japan that are built around it, so if they can't do it anymore, that shithole community dies. They just call it "for scientific purposes" to attempt to save face on the international level.

My grandmother passed away a few weeks back, and me and my mom took in her old yorkie, and had him for a few months. My moms boyfriend moved and the dog hates him and randomly attacks him and the othet dogs, so he's getting taken to the vet so we can get him anti-anxiety meds. Im worried the vet won't help, and he'll get put down even though he's relatively healthy for his age (he's 15). Am I worried for nothing? I don't want to kill a dog because he's an inconvenience. Pic unrelated

What animals and ecosystems will we see go extinct by the end of the century?
From what I've been reading it seems that these are the animals who will be most affected
>salamanders
>big cats
>elephants
>great apes
>cetaceans
>large fish like sharks and tuna
>some species of turtles
What else is there? How about the animals that will dominate in the new human-altered ecosystem?

Pigeons seagulls and rats will thrive as will certain species of insects as for plants I do not know that could be a major problem if droughts and fires become more common or heavy seasonal rain in areas that do not typically get so much but I imagine that weeds and grasses would be largely unaffected

so, what's the next step? I've got no money for a vet and there is no animal shelter in my whole state.
he is just there with his head in the ground and open eyes :(
I'm thinking on giving him more sleeping pills until he dies (or should i just OD him with it)

Never had a sheep but goats feel gud. Not as great as dog or horse tho.

Which animals are doomed to perish in the Anthropocene and which do you think will survive climate change and habitat destruction personally I think the oceans are doomed to the worst fate because of the ph issue with it becoming acidic and chinks throwing plastic in the ocean among the many other problems plaguing the ocean right now

Frogs and toads will be relatively fine. It's salamanders that are fucked.

Frogs are much less specialized and really their main requirement for survival is a waterbody to breed in. They're capable of utilizing gardens and flowerpots as shelter, learning to catch bugs attracted to lights at night, and locating places like abandoned pools to breed in. Anura tadpoles are also generalists and capable of eating anything from algae to dead insects to even human poop.

Meanwhile salamanders are much more sensitive to disturbances in their environment. They require a constantly moist habitat filled with woody debris to hide under, they will only breed in vernal pools or in some species small creeks without fish (these creeks are the most vulnerable to being destroyed by urban sprawl because half the time they dont even show up on maps), and salamander tadpoles are carnivorous and require a healthy ecosystem of stuff like fingernail clams and macroinvertebrates to feed on. They're simply not capable of surviving in a left over cattle trough like frogs are.
