Cable made my point about dogs/cats and human affection.
My other very logical point was that the distribution of several species is very large and therefore is a defence against over collection or habitat destruction. I drive through NV every May accross Hwy 6 right through the middle of the state. I see short/desert habitat the entire 700 mile stretch. I actually see dozens of Hls along the way siiting in the road. (more than people/cars)The same species lives in palm Springs, down by Anza Borrego, in Az. Short of a nuke, I believe it would be impossible to wipe them out. The SD coastal I've seen at the top of Ortega Hwy on rocky steep trails in areas I wouldn't have thought that they would be. (in large numbers)
My point with this species is there is no need to outlaw ownership.(bags limits and breeding should be encouraged) If the entire Sd population were somehow wiped out due to house and farms in their range, the sd hl would still have a large undesturbed habitat in the Clevland Nat'l. Forrest. Therefore don't arrest the kids in Vista/Oceanside who are lucky enough to find one in the fields by their house.
