The Fast Draw: Pros and cons of growing animal population
This is a well done overview, inevitably oversimplified, of our tyrannical relationship with animals and nature, as no one can deny that those who came to America, first mainly from Europe, descended on this continent like a plague of wild locusts leaving few native things standing. The video chronicles in a rather noncommittal way (it looks detachedly upon trapping, for example, which should be morally indefensible in any civilized nation and revolting to any decent human being) the loop of savage destruction of several species and then their almost miraculous salvation right on the brink of extinction by exogenous forces (industrialization, urbanization, etc.) and the hand of government, belatedly acting with a measure of wisdom.
