Honest, I promise to STOP blogging about the darned Butler's garter snake just as soon as Glenn lets go of it's tail.
Today in the online Journal-Sentinel:
The co-chairman of the committee, Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend), said he does not believe the DNR has the authority to limit the use of private land to protect a threatened species.So the DNR wouldn't have had the authority to stop me from shooting Bald Eagles as long as they were on my property?
[While the bald eagle remains on the Federal threatened list, populations of our national symbol here in Wisconsin are thriving and have been, happily, finally, taken off the list. I suppose Glenn could shoot them now, if he wanted to -- except for the eagle specific acts protecting them. Still, it's a safe damned bet that the DNR had the authority to keep us from shooting them, even on our own property, back when they were still endangered.]
Glenn must know somebody who wanted to put up a fence. I wonder who it was?
