    Oregon officials were successful in getting permission to kill sea lions that feed on protected salmon trying to swim upriver to spawn. Now they want federal approval to shoot a sea bird that eats millions of baby salmon trying to reach the ocean.

    In an April 5 letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service obtained by The Associated Press, Oregon Wildlife Chief Ron Anglin says harassment has “proved insufficient” in controlling double-crested cormorants, and officials want the option of killing some of the birds.

    Oregon needs federal approval to start shooting double-breasted cormorants because the birds are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

    Anglin wrote that the birds are threatening restoration of wild fish protected by the Endangered Species Act, as well as hatchery fish important to sport and commercial fishing.
  2. Similiar but not as bad (depends on your outlook) but we had some land ( nature preserve) protected because of a butterfly. The preserve is now over run with deer and the land is unusable for humans because of deer ticks.

    I suppose some naturalists are happy but the preserve was sold as a hikers, bird watchers paradise with trails and stupid pulpits located everywhere with state written drivel attached on the wonder of trees and rocks and history birds deer insects. What we need is a good gd lighting strike. Booyah, get back to nature with a wildfire. :D
