I read that the Oregon forest is now over supplied with owls and the Interior Department has a plan to kill some of them.

That is correct - the Barred Owl has moved into the Spotted Owl’s supposed territory and pushed them out. The Forest Service plans to kill over one thousand of these beautiful birds to make room for Spotted Owls that aren’t there.
It is utter lunacy - at the same time, finding a Bald Eagle feather on the ground and taking it home can get you time in federal prison. But killing our national symbol for a stinking windmill will be approved - it’s the bizarro world on steroids.

Yes, and then they're going to give the 40,000 loggers, truck-drivers and sawmill operators their jobs back.

Not.
