Feds target barred owls in Northwest

A waste of funding

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to start sending hunters into the woods of the Northest to kill barred owls (pictured here) in an experiment to see if that will help the threatened northern spotted owl rebound from population declines. [Toby Talbot, AP Photo.]

Spotted or barred, what possible difference to the ecosystem could it make? [“Feds advance plan to kill barred owls in Northwest,” NW Wednesday, July 24.]

The rabbits, birds or rodents won’t know the difference in which species makes them their dinner.

Species have been going extinct and evolving since the dawn of time. Should we kill people because they replaced dinosaurs? Oops, too late for that!

Why not spend $3 million to help nonproductive people become productive and forget about interfering with nature?
