Killing Owls in a Flight of Ignorance and Stupidity

The latest genius idea to come out of normally sane Canada is that it's a good idea to shoot REAL LIVE OWLS in order protect an invented subspecies of another owl which freely cross-breeds with the type of owl that the Canadians have decided to shoot.

The owl the Canadians have decided to shoot is the Barred Owl (Strix varia), which freely cross-breeds with the Northern Spotted Owl (Strix occidentalis caurina), which is simply an invented subspecies that freely interbreeds with regular Spotted Owls (Strix occidentalis), which can be found all over western North America and into Mexico.

But the geniuses in British Columbia say screw Mother Nature.

What does SHE know?

And never mind if shooting owls will change nothing, as the area in question is too large to actually patrol and cull, and owls are simply too hard to spot.

All that will come out of all of this is a lot of dead Barred Owls.  Yippee!

Another victory for Stupid on a Stick.

In our defence ... The States started it first, I think. But, it's crazy isn't it. I don't like it. I am not sure how the rest of the Spotted Owl species are actually doing, not too well, either, I don't think.

They / we have just not ensured enough habitat was left for them.,
