$40,000 reward offered for condor shooters

There are 4 comments on the Monterey County Herald story from May 25, 2009, titled $40,000 reward offered for condor shooters. In it, Monterey County Herald reports that:

It's not quite a reprise of the 1950s TV western series "Wanted: Dead or Alive." But the Center for Biological Diversity is resorting to a Wild West tactic in its quest to bring the person or persons who shot two condors early this year to justice: wanted posters.

What a bunch of unadulterated gumna! Why are we not we seeing a diminution of all the other carrion eaters. Vultures, eagles, coyotes, lions, pigs,badgers,ground squirrels are thriving. This is nothing more than a group of bureaucrats trying to protect their special "Rice Bowl"! Get a job!!

Summer of 2008 I met a man at Quail Lodge (Carmel Valley) who had a young hawk on a leash/restraints. He paradedthis bird around the pool and was showing it off to others at the hotel. He was a foolish, tiny, over-tanned, arrogant little man with a steroid problem (to put it nicely). When I asked him about the hawk, he gloated that he had stolen it from its nest just days earlier. He claimed it was a mere 18 days old.
Disgusted, I promtly went to the front desk and asked to use the phone. I called the county sherriffs office and spoke with a woman whose name I dont remember. She seemed interested in what I was saying, but..alas..it was Sunday.
I waited for someone to show up while this fool was still showing off his terrified prisoner. I waited an hour. The woman at the desk was aware of what was happening and was glad to do what she could, but....she was off of work soon, and while on the clock, one cant actually do much about a problem like this. This man admitted that he had done this numerous other times, and that he had done this to train the hawks to hunt for him. Where these hawks are now, one can only hope they flew off. However, this rediculously macho, steroid popping moron was allowed to walk away with this bird that day. Nobody did anything. The "Authorities" took there rural-ass time and never showed up.
Why make laws if the 'authorities" wont make the time to uphold these laws.
What am I talking about, I should know better. This hasbeen happening forever. Ask anyone who isnt a white male.
Forget it. It doesnt matter. May the white male destroy everything while we watch in horror.
