>> Second, the NPS data that you quoted is completely inaccurate. Burros would not be able to survive in the remote areas of DV if they required 5 gallons of water a day.<<

I don't think the data read they "required" 5 gallons of water a day, but that they could drink that much.

>>They are much like camels in that regard. Gee Lara, why and how do you think the NPS came up with this false data? <<

Even camels need to "fill 'er up" once in a while in order to go long periods of time without water.

Whether or not NPS data is false is not up to me to decide. I just quoted their statements. If they are not valid then that is up to the readers, like yourself, to determine.

The park service has their own agenda and facts/data can be manufactured to support whatever that agenda requires.

>> I would vote for the burros vs. the mountain lions. And how many big horns in DV do you think the burros have directly killed vs how many were killed by mountain lions? <<

I wouldn't vote for burros over mountain lions. It doesn't matter whether a big horn is killed directly or indirectly, dead is dead.

I think there is a place for both burros and lions. Just in the right numbers.

I think we are in basic agreement over the principal.
