Our dear Lars does not seem to be aware that the introduction of animals from one to another place can indeed be a disaster and case in point was the introduction of rabbits both wild for hunting and domesticated for food by European settlers in Australia led to the destruction of vegetations and native plants species and the top soil was blown away preventing planting crops or even restoring the native vegetation and this importation of rabbits was to say the least a disaster that does not seem to have a solution to this day

Sound familiar our dear Lars?

Arab friends did the same they brought their herds of goats and sheep and the end result was desertification in places like Egypt and the old Roman cultivated land of North Africa

This has nothing to do with pigs our dear Lars right? and where is your Allah when you need him
