Govt to Kill 3,600 Owls to Save Other Owls

The federal government is upset that spotted owls are disappearing. So they’re going to kill 3,600 barred owls to even the score.The Pacific Northwest has been dealing with the caprices of government for decades when it comes to the northern spotted owl. Twenty-three years ago, environmentalists noticed that the population of the birds was decreasing faster than they liked.The owl-huggers successfully lobbied the federal government to list the bird as an endangered species and drastically reduced the logging they had blamed for the owl’s predicament. Problem solved!
