Yahoo! One for the animals. Being in the Wildlife Management business, I felt compelled to go and check out the movie, Furry Vengeance. I have to say, the raccoon was my favorite. He was one clever fellow—very much like most raccoons we encounter. I enjoyed the movie thoroughly and my 6 year old son, Jason, was in stitches during the entire show. If animals could fight back, I am sure they would…they only have a few intentions in life, to survive (find food, water and shelter) and to pro-create—they will always come from that perspective….and as for people, well we come from all different types of perspectives, some more globally conscience then others. In my previous life, I spent 17 years on wall street in Real Estate Finance and unfortunately, I met many developers/property owners that focused on the deal, losing sight of what the impact would be long term to an area if that deal went through….yeah sure they would abide by requirements laid out by the municipality, i.e. if you are going to destroy x, then you must plant 10 trees…yada yada, but the concern was rarely about protecting the wildlife.
My desire or hope is that perhaps this satire will actually raise awareness to the destruction created by large developers wiping out forests and other natural sites and the wildlife present in our world today. Maybe we could figure out better ways to work together, both the Wildlife Control Operator and the Real Estate Developers. Why does it have to be, build = destruction? Yes, it might cost a few extra bucks, but price it into your backend cost on the sale of the property—given the state of our environments, nature locations should sell for a substantial premium…so come on developers, any thoughts??
And it has nothing to do with Capitalism. I am a pure Capitalist with a social conscience.
