Before the dust bowl era began, The grasslands of places like Oklahoma were turned into vast fields of wheat to sell to our allies during the Great War. During this moment of prosperity, the farmers who inhabited these lands killed off a large number of the coyotes in the area.
As the Great Depression hit right along with a drought, it became harder for families to plant and keep gardens to feed themselves. This fact was made more difficult by the jackrabbits that were allowed to grow to overwhelming numbers free from any dominant predator. They ate EVERYTHING in their path. Something had to be done.
Enter jackrabbit drives: a community ritual designed to thin out the rabbit population lest the humans starve to death.
It is said that the dust bowl era is the biggest man-made ecological disaster known in the US. It is fascinating what happens when humans are forced to face their animal nature.

“I think I was so drawn to her character in this movie because, for all of the “craziness” society and people have bestowed on her, she absolutely owns up to all of them. She’s slept with people in her office because she was depressed her husband died. People call her a slut. So what? We’ve all got problems. Why do we judge people?" - Jennifer Lawrence on her character in Silver Linings Playbook, Tiffany Maxwell

Can’t believe someone used the “finally fucking said it” in an appropriate context.
