SPOTTED OWL MAY DESTROY HISTORIC TOWN THAT'S "TOO TOUGH TO DIE!"
Liberty News Network ^ | June 12, 2012 | Duane Lester

Posted on 06/14/2012 2:42:40 PM PDT by SaveOurRepublicFromTyranny

A Spotted Owl may do what Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp, Johnny Ringo, the Clanton gang, the Gunfight at the OK Corral and two major fires couldn’t do: destroy Tombstone, known throughout the century as “The town too tough to die!”

According to several CNN reports, Tombstone may soon run out of water because of a broken 26-mile water pipeline, which runs through a National Forest....

A few people with a couple of .22’s should take care of that problem.

Actually, all you need to do....is bring in around one hundred Eagles, and just turn them loose. The Owl population within two or three years would be non-existent. And in case you were wondering...the last time I checked...the Eagle is not on the endangered creatures list.

The Forestry Service might be very upset by this....but there’s nothing illegal about this...unlike shooting the Owls.

Those species who can't adapt, will be replaced.

Let’s wait a bit until some hippies start climbing up the trees and protect it so we can get a 2-for-1 or even 5-for-1. Ammo is getting expensive nowadays.

From the article:

“In federal court, James Upchurch, a Forest Service supervisor who oversees the wilderness was asked, ‘What is more important, owls or the people of Tombstone?’ Upchurch responded that there was no easy answer, which left jaws dropping on Tombstone’s side of the courtroom.”

That's all you really need to know about these anti-human environmentalist bastards.

I truly hate them with a red-hot passion.

Environazi ping!

Not accurate enough plus you have to get too close. A couple hundred feet with a .22 should be plenty to blow those critters out of the trees. Then have those wildlife freaks come out to try to find them. Worked on the spotted owl in the PNW. None to be found, logging going on just merrily.

Mexican spotted owl? Sounds like more “subspecies creep” here first and foremost. That’s what they use when a species is actually relatively abundant over large areas, break the areas up and find that critter in areas A and B are “subspecies”.

Of course, the overiding purpose of this is to get people out of these areas so they can be “re-wilded”...

The same objective was met with the .410. Building on private property proceeded as scheduled.

I’d prefer a .22 myself. LOL

The Clanton gang would sure like that.

I have a nice old JC Higgins .22 my grand pappy gave me. Semi-auto. Really long barrel and very very accurate. My favorite is my .22-250 Savage with a bull barrel. It’s the one I use on those pesky prairie dogs. I use a 4,000 fps hot round in that. One dog’ll say to the other “like, huh?” and he’d be gone too.

You're correct...James Upchurch must be one of the enviro-nazis who infiltrated the Forest Service long enough ago to now be a supervisor, the same thing has happened in the BLM. It's pathetic.

Thanks for the ping, Fly.

You have the requirement to pay money to keep the federal government fat in money, but if you go down the tubes, screw ya. You’re just a blood bag for the ticks to suck off of you. Shut up and pay your money and pray that owls will live longer than you.

If Romney’s people have any sense, they’ll set up a campaign stop in Tombstone, with their candidate denouncing this federal government tyranny with the OK Corral as a backdrop. That would score some HUGE points out West.

You're exactly right. It is. It's a race of the spotted owl that differs from the Pacific (northern) race only in plumage details.

Which gets me to my pet peeve: Why does the Endangered SPECIES Act now apply to a sub-species (race)? In my opinion, this is beyond the criminal. This is a blatant misuse of this Act, which is a blatant miscarriage of justice in the first place. And no one seems to be pointing this out!

If this continues, and sub-species (races) are to be protected by the ESA, then virtually the entire country will be off limits to any sort of development. It's infuriating.

Thanks for your post. And for letting me rant. I work with young environmentalists every day, and it's driving me BATTY! Their level of ignorance is astounding and their contempt for rural Americans is absolutely flabbergasting. And, yes, they still love the Kenyan. Heaven help us!

The old timers from the real Tombstone would have used 45’s and they wouldn’t be shooting at Owls.

This is a crock.

Thanks!

I was just up your way (Inyo and Mono counties) doing some bird surveys a few days ago. Spent time on some tributaries of the Walker River and in the White Mountains and the Eastern Sierra.

It's God's Country there, FRiend!

I beat ya! I already posted on that thread just a few minutes ago.

Speaking of which, if the sage-grouse gets listed, we can kiss all outdoor activity (camping, hunting, fishing) good-bye. Don't think it's going to happen though. Just a gut feeling.

Anyway, I should have pinged you to that thread too. I'll keep you in mind for future pings.

All the best!

The feds want the property, and are using a bird as an excuse to get it, via the environazis. Land grabs are nothing new in the west, and the feds have now tossed their hat into the ring.
