Rabbit? I haven't seen a rabbit in the wild for at least 20 years  and haven't eaten one in closer to 35 years  i still haven't forgotten the taste of fresh rabbit cooked over an open fire,a little salt and pepper and stuffed with some garlicand onion.  and i gave it up because it was getting harder and harder to find them. Mankind needs to control it's population or we will find ourselves on that list of creatures headed towards extinction ( unlesss ET comes along and gives us warp drive so we can leave the planet to the rest of it's inhabitants we are on our way towards being on that list.)

It's true.   I grew up in the north woods of Michigan.. on a lake,  which is always an attractor for animals.
When i was a little kid ( about 50ish years ago)  their was an incredible amount of wildlife running and flying around.
The woods are much much MUCH quieter now.  ...   One good note:   many birds , like Eagles, and Cranes are becoming more plentiful once again after the banning of DDT years ago. ( which made eggshells so soft that many chicks did not survive long enough to hatch)

Too many places are getting quieter, and that is truly sad. We have the good blessings that where we live now is very alive. Most people visiting us for the first time expecting the peaceful quiet of the boonies are usually surprised at how noisy it is here.

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

sadly the gap is being replaced by headphones and repetitive pop music

Silence is the sound of DOOM !!

We are already past the point of 50% biodiversity loss which will send the whole system into terminal decline. As far as I can see its just ticking the days of the calender at this point.

When you go outside and don't even hear birds singing any more, yeah, that's a scary feeling.  I experienced that recently after cutting the yard in this lovely 108 degree weather that we've been having.  I stopped the lawn mower once finished and there wasn't a single sound outdoors, well, maybe a distant cicada but that's about the only thing enjoying this weather:  mosquitoes and cicadas.

unfortunatly, it seems the only sounds we hear from each other is the sound on one man trying to sell something to the other.  We are blind as well as deaf.

I live in the middle of town now, grew up in the country. However a pair of great horned owls moved in to the treed lot next door and they are singing away every night! Plus the college kids moved out so I can hear nature again here..

Animals don't just give up if their food source is depleted... they migrate or take on a different food source.  Maybe if the species that sustain larger predators become sparse enough, we'll end up being their prey.

Hmm.  Maybe lions, bears, wolves, and the like should be what we're thinking about instead of zombies :D

There is no greater risk in life than doing nothing.
