Coexistence is key
presented a fairly balanced view of the problem. Otherwise, most animal activists are hypocrites. They profess to standing up for wildlife protection while not talking about the slaughter of animals for human consumption. More importantly, in this particular debate, animal activists do not realise the cost to agriculture. Farmers, who work very hard to raise crops, often end up seeing them destroyed by animals. The havoc caused by animals has caused many a farmer to abandon agriculture and move to urban areas in search of other work. Those left behind do not get adequate nutrition because they can afford only limited fruit and vegetables. abreast of this side of the issue as well.
In my view, the human-animal conflict is due to ecological imbalance. Herbivores have run riot in villages because there are hardly any big carnivores to keep them in check. Habitat loss also ensures that there is not much forest flora to satiate their hunger. The solution to the problem lies in the balanced management of herbivores, carnivores and agriculture.
