Obama will kill Barred Owls to Protect Spotted Owls

    The Obama Administration is going forward with a plan to shoot Barred Owls who have encroached on Spotted Owl habitat.  Is this fair?  Logging was greatly reduced because the Spotted Owl became an endangered species, now it seems it wasn't the logging that caused the decline in Spotted Owls as much as Barred Owls.  Doesn't this go against nature?

    Both contribute, and logging is certainly a huge part of it, not "nature". Logging forced these animals to compete for the same greatly diminished habitat.

    I support efforts to prevent the extinction of species. But in the long run it will be for nothing unless habitat is recreated.
