“SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - The greatest threat in the U.S. to the northern spotted owl, an imperilled bird at the centre of a decades-old environmental clash in the Pacific Northwest, is no longer the timber industry -- it's another owl.

The federal government says it plans to launch a program to kill or otherwise remove hundreds of barred owls -- originally from the East Coast -- that are overtaking the spotted owl's natural range in Washington state, Oregon and northern California….

Oh boy!  The Green Agenda is driven by nothing more than vague feelings of guilt, likely related to the young environmentalist parents being to lenient with their children during toilet training.   I do hope that Ted Turner is forced to house a displaced lumber jack family in each of his mansions to make up for twenty years of lost wages and opportunities in the Pacific North West’s timber industry.

I figure anything that needs the amount of land they say it needs to survive needs to be extinct.

I’m not a radical environmentalist, but can’t be let anything else live?

I’ve never seen any of these spotted owl things, but those old growth Thuja Plicata’s in the Pacific Northwest are worth some conservation on their own right.

If an animal is replaced with a better adapted animal, even if that animal may have been placed there by man, isn't that the way nature works?  We do not have giant sloths around here anymore for a reason.

Giant Sloths?  I thought the varrroa mites did them in?

What’s better adapted; humans, spotted owls, mosquitoes, or cockroaches?  So what are our odds in ‘natures way’?

Ssh, bee very very quite about 'them' giant sloths.  If the environmentalist findout they will begin lobbying to reintroduce these super sized critters.  They have already reintroduced wolves, bears, and other predator species that are better adapted to living in a wilderness with little human contact and without domestic livestock to gnaw on.

The point of my original post was that you can not depend on environmentalism's words or "scientific" knowledge.  They to often manipulate the facts to produce the results that environmentalist want and need to justify their biases and advance their agendas.

You can replace "environmentalism's" or "scientific" with "Human/s" and you will cover the whole spectrum around the globe.
