Today Is Another Three-fer

   A Florida Black Bear  Right Whale Mother and Calf  A Whooping Crane with Juvenile

Three things have happened recently that affect Endangered Wildlife.
First, the Black Bear has been taken off of Florida's Endangered Species List.
Do not even get me started on this disaster.......
I have talked to those at the very top of the food chain in Florida about this
and there is no changing their minds, period.
And second, a lawsuit has been filed to try to prevent the numbers of deadly ship
strikes on the most Endangered Whale on our planet, the Right Whale.
And third, the state of Nebraska has very foolishly extended something that never
should have been started in the first place for this exact reason.
Hunting Sandhill Cranes is beyond a really stupid idea and here is why:
At half a mile, more or less, away, do you really think that most hunters
can tell the difference between the Sandhill Crane and the critically
Endangered Whooping Crane, before he pulls the trigger?
What were these people in Nebraska thinking or smoking?
