good that you are educating whoever you can. there is a guy i chat with occasionally that lives in australia. we were chatting about snakes and stuff, and he was telling me on how he kills everything that comes near his farm to protect his children and his chickens. he said he wants his children to grow up afraid of snakes. I asked him why, and his response was "cause there are venemous ones, and better safe then sorry."
i was able to convince him to try to safely educate his children on which ones are "good" and which are "bad". i think some education is better then none at all!
sorry for the rambling.
