Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Dept. of Agriculture, asks us to "Please don't feed the animals" because they may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.
But, maybe the nation is getting better; we have fewer people reading what used to be called Newspapers.

Your wrong. Your statment is only true if two assumptions are made. 1) That Human's are not a part of nature; and 2) aminals, other than and in the absence of humans, can actively mangage their own "world."
Both of these assumptions are clearly false. Statements like this arise from the proliferation of things like Disney movies where animals can talk and dance to music misteriously playing in the woods.
