The Quintessential Shot in the Dark

A special place, the H‏álpata Tastanaki Preserve,
one of the few remaining habitats left in the State for
the Endangered Florida Scrub Jay is about to
become a hunting ground.
Try to imagine being in your bedroom late at night
snuggling under the warm covers and then boom.......
A shot rings out ending your peace and tranquility,
not to mention your hearing abilities.
When you look up, someone is standing over you, with a shot gun.
This is what is about to take place and the victim of this scene, is the very Endangered Scrub Jay, the only bird native to our state, who like the Florida Panther, has only a very tiny habitat left to call home.
If you live in Florida and have the time and the desire, please consider attending this public hearing/meeting of the SW Water Management District:
February 28, at 9AM
2379 Broad Street
Brooksville, Florida
Any questions?
Please call LuAnne Stout at: 352 796-7211 ext. 4605
The Florida Scrub Jay deserves to have Floridians defend its right to a peaceful night's sleep, right?
