    Oh, wonderful. Just three neighbors browsing and hanging out.

    You can also bet if one of them went on alert, the other two would instantly pick up on it. It’s a good idea to pay attention to other non-threats around you, even if they aren’t your own kind.

    pronghorn are actually most closely related to giraffes and okapi, not antelope …

    What a wonderful shot.

    That rabbit was posed just right in front of that lush green bush. Otherwise you might not even see him.

    I love when animals come together like this.

    the rabbit thinks it’s hiding beside the bush.

    I can see the resemblance to the Okapi.

    pronghorn antelope often cited as the second-fastest land animal, second only to the cheetah. It can, however, sustain high speeds longer than cheetahs.

    i have a boone and crockett record pronghorn mount that is the best specimen i have ever seen anywhere. for you non hunters i want you to know that it his neck and antlers are adorned with various fetishes and talismans, so the life of this beautiful animal is being celebrated.

    Scotty, why can’t the life of that ‘beautiful’ animal be celebrated while its’ alive!!! The fact that it is the ‘best’ specimen that you have ever seen makes it even more abhorrent!

    Sorry for the double comment.

    Humans are carnivores. Sorry, but that’s science.

    Until the CAFOs animals used to be treated humanely before they made the “ultimate sacrifice”. We need to get back to that.

    That goes for vegetation too. No more huge factory farms and mono crops and herbicides and pesticides. That is as cruel to the land and environment as the CAFOs.

    Plus, Americans eat a lot more meat than they need to. A few meals a week is plenty. Make Sunday Suppers special again by being the meal with meat. Three times a week is fine. No need for meat three meals a day seven days a week. The rest of the week if you have a soup or salad starter before the meal, you can really cut down on not only your meat intake but your pocketbook and your waistline.

    I’ve heard there is a growing disdain for leftovers. I was brought up on leftovers. We don’t throw food away. Between making soup stock and composting you can reduce what goes in the landfill and the garbage disposal, thus extending the useable life of both.

    I have no beef with hunters taking a deer or antelope as long as they’re eating it. I don’t know many people that eat wolf or bear.

    I don’t think the answer is to stop eating meat. I think we need to respect the source. Stop being cruel. Stop being wasteful.

    Prayer After Eating by Wendell Berry

    I have taken in the light
    that quickened eye and leaf.
    May my brain be bright with praise
    of what I eat, in the brief blaze
    of motion and of thought.

    May I be worthy of my meat.
