"Regrettably, there probably are some small animal deaths. However,
the number of deaths in a mile of rice harvesting pales in comparison to
the road kill on a mile of highway.

That's an obvious lie, and anyone who's aware that animals don't
live on asphalt should be able to understand why.

Where's the obvious lie? Animals traverse highways, and numerous
vehicles are constantly speeding along them.., but animals can easily
move out of the way of slow machinery making one pass in the field.

Even if somehow, incredibly, no animals were killed by harvesters:

the environment they had depended on for shelter from predators is
removed and predators kill them because they have nowhere left
to hide.

Where are all 'these' frogs coming from, [email protected]?


Upstream.


Yeah... like in Texas flowing streams are swarming with frogs .. Rotfl!


Some are. Here's something else you can't comprehend: there are
sometimes tadpoles too. Something else you won't be able to grasp:
there is often still water behind the flood gates where eggs are laid
and tadpoles hatch and live, and when the gate is opened the eggs
and tadpoles are swept along with the water.

Show us some other documentation of this alleged mass slaughter.

diderot fiction snipped.
..
Why would I "want to believe" that so many animals are killed in
rice production.

To feel better about the billions of deaths caused by the livestock industry.


Since you don't believe there are a significant number of cds involved
with crop production, which deaths do you think you're referring to, have
you any idea?


Of course.


Which ones?
