So there are these big bad crocodiles threatening animals and people and we are all concerned about to handle this matter. Well, let me tell you that this is not an unusual case for twenty five years ago there were many of these such problems and the folks only knew to handle it one way.
Now I will tell you of a few cases I do not really agree with, but that is how it was. When there were too many dogs in the village, people took it on their responsibility to reduce the population of stray dogs. Whenever a new litter was born, they would be placed in a bag and someone took them to the lagoon and dumped them into the water. This was when the owner of the dog wanted no more puppies. At times, they would keep the male puppies and kill all the females for these were responsible for the over population as they saw it. The same was true of cats and kittens.
Dolphins were always spotted near the beach, but they were never killed. Raccoons that overturned the garbage containers and made quite a mess were killed with a stick or paddle, but that is if you could catch them for they were quite fast and astute. Don't ask about snakes. When people spotted a snake twenty five years ago, it would mean a commotion and people would not be satisfied until that snake was dead.
It is a bit different today. There is much thought in conserving animals, game fish, certain birds, and many land animals. We teach everyone to try to protect these animals so that our future generations may enjoy them. That is all good as long as we can enjoy them, like cats and dogs, and toucans. But if the animals become dangerous, like the sharks, then I tend to prefer the method of Twenty Five Years Ago.
