Extreme Hunter in Charge of Birdies, Bunnies
30 Mar 2005
Secretary Norton named as acting director of the USFWS a man named Matt Hogan who is the former head of Safari Club International. What kind of organization is the Safari Club? Oh, a hunters' lobbying organization which promotes, among other things, the hunting of rare and endangered species. Who wants to bet the ESA is next in the sights of the present administration?
May I quote the Humane Society?
"The latest example of SCI's growing influence in Washington is the Bush Administration's initiative to "save" the world's endangered species by killing or selling them, and then using the revenues as an incentive for poor countries to improve their conservation efforts." Kidding, kidding, NOT kidding, ha ha ha.
