Is it coincidence or a message that San Antonio Texas got hit with biblical floods a few weeks ago ? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/25/san-antonion-flooding_n_3337223.html
There, land developers are pushing to build houses near Bracken Caves where millions of bats live. http://www.batcon.org/index.php/get-involved/visit-a-bat-location/bracken-bat-cave.html
“The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” ― Chief Seattle
Moral fabric of society & modern science says that Chief Seattle was right
140 years ago, radio, TV, smart-phones were all dreams....now reality.
With the intensive rains over the Bow Valley occurring at the same time as
the snow pack melting one begins to wonder about the timing of the once in 300 year flood. http://www.rmoutlook.com/article/20130912/RMO0801/309129993/0/RMO
The effects on an uncaring Calgary who people quietly ignored our desperate plea for life - well it seems connected to rabbits fate.
Rabbits nearest relative are horses as descendants of the commonly shared ancestor. The floods put into jeopardy the Calgary Stampede, notorious for horses killed in races, and further underlines the general stupidity of having a Zoo along the banks of a river. Now early 2014 and Calgary has a record number of frostquakes - miles from the flood zones of 2013.
Near Canmore at Exshaw, for the past few years, a rare white-hair buffalo baby that is sacred to the FIrst Nations people has been kept away from its Mother & herd living in lonely isolation as a tourism gimmick. Was the spirit of Chief Seattle moved to act ?
Casey & Borrowman and other ilk of Canmore officials are all Conservative party supporters. The floods strike at the Conservative heartland, from Canmore to High River, where animals and animal rights are an inconvenience and something to be sneered at by ranchers. Since then High River has kindly opened an animal sanctuary - and has great support by the community. Thank you High River !
The 2013 floods forced rescheduling of the Conservatives national convention. The floods come at a time Conservatives are under fire (again) for scandals, abusing people and stomping on public democratic rights - just as they did in Canmore to kill the bunnies. ( update - Canmore Folk Festival of Aug. 3-5 2013 had unusually cold drenching rains all weekend ... )
Perhaps we can blame it all on the supermoon at solstice or global warming, but too many coincidences of persisent heavy rains a the same time as snowpack melting begins to look like Universal Karma, or the finger of God. (see other peoples similar remarks).
So maybe these floods are a message from God to care about God's animals, and for arrogantly presume superiority over all other life.
Don't shoot me, I'm just the messenger...consider the message instead > : O
