    What stooges these well paid enviro crusaders are with their simplistic dogma and fish history revisionism.
    As is verrrry predictable, the responses to this crisis are hypocritical when it comes to seeing the big picture, or recognizing their own short sightedness in policy making, and the negative effects of protecting predatory species.
    I await eco based management.
    There will be war.
