The Intelligent Design Management of Wildlife

"Pet Kotoob" in Maya means "Rounded Walls", and was discovered by Arturo Gomez-Pompa in the Maya Ruins, where he found big circular (rounded) stone cages. Inside them he found exotic seeds from far and foreign regions. By analogy, we took such name like an emblem for our rational breeding of wildlife, which is the Mendelian Bioengineering within an Intelligent Design framework.

The references that we used then in our local publications where the next ones:

1.) The Holy Bible, Leviticus 11, which deals with every edible animal for humans, for example:
"Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is cloven-footed, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat" (Lv. 11:3).
2.) Hopcraft, D. 1980. "La Tecnología de la Naturaleza" (The Natural Technology), Banco del Atlántico (Atlantic Bank), México.

"When I was adolescent I experienced the first great dust storm registered in our cattle and agriculture region... some families continued to live there, starving, bewildered and resisting to leave their birth places. There still was left a few starved cattle eating the barks of dead trees. After that I became aware that only 25 years before, in that very same land, in the past there were beautiful crop fields. I was terrified and decided to investigate what had happened..."
Hopcraft was the founder of a Swara ranch, 40 Km south-east of Nairobi, his "Wildlife Ranching and Research". He pointed out the advantages of the breeding of the wildlife: they maintain their ecological niche with minimal expenses, nutritional efficiency, high growth and reproduction rates, resistance, full benefits, adaptability and high yielding.

"To eliminate native animals by introducing cows is like cutting a vital organ of a living body, soon the remainder gets deteriorated and dies. If we learn again how to use the native animals we can revert that destructive process:

1- The ranches and reserves need to be in harmony with the original ecological equilibrium,
2- They need to promote the return to the several species that used to live there initially, and their interactions,
3- The energetic cycle needs to be stable in the ecosystem without the need of energetic imports."

3-) Granados Espitia, H. 1985. "La cría de mamíferos salvajes como fuente de alimentos" (The Breeding of Wild Mammals as a Source of Food), Ciencia y Desarrollo (Science and Development). 63. México.

"We need to divide in two the breeding of wild mammals:

1- The ones that still exist in numerous amounts (White-Tailed Deer, wild-hog, tepescuintle...), they can provide natural protein as a business,

2- The ones that are in danger of extinction (Bura Deer, "Borrego Cimarrón", tapir, temazate), need first to be breed in order to repopulate them"

"So, we need first to do the ecological selection of the land. Second, we need to plan and to establish the ranch or reserve (we need to determine the necessary personnel, the access roads, fencing, periodic stocks, to educate the surrounding population, the facilities (housing, offices, workstations, meat and coats processors...), as well as the first year's costs). Third, we need to do the commercialization of our product (meat in its different presentations, skins and coats, horns and hoofs...)"

"To apply this solution has been, since a long time ago, a very urgent need"

4.) Leopold, A. S. 1987. "Fauna silvestre de México" (The Mexican Wildlife). Instituto Mexicano de Recursos Renovables [Mexican Institute of Renewable Resources] (4ta. Reimpresión [Fourth Printing]). México.

"An excessive and inadequate agriculture is dangerous for the ecosystem, bringing dangers such as erosion, desertification and ecological instability."
5.) Villarreal, G. J. 1987. "Manejo del venado cola blanca (Odocoileus virginianus texanus) con fines de aprovechamiento cinegético en el norte de México" (Management of the White-tail Deer with Hunting Purposes in the North of Mexico). Memorias del V Simposium Sobre Fauna (Memories of the Fifth Wildlife Symposium), UNAM (Autonomous National University of Mexico). México.

I was then in the UAG, Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (Autonomous University of Guadalajara) taking my Specialty in Agroecosystems (the Rational Exploitation of all kinds of Plants) and Zootechny (the Rational Exploitation of all kinds of Animals). Some of the most interested colleagues in such field were Engineers Cota, Gonzalez and Acevedo. Cheers to all of them!

My Specialty’s ‘Alma Mater’ is going to be hosting Intelligent Design with Dr. Paul Nelson:

Thanks to Dr. William A. Dembski for informing us of such news.
