BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Federal officials have told the Idaho fish and game officials that their plan to halve the number of pelicans nesting in southern and eastern Idaho by 2013 to boost fisheries is an "eradication program" that needs more work. The Idaho Fish and Game Commission in May approved a five-year plan to kill and haze American white pelicans in southeastern Idaho to protect sport fish and Yellowstone cutthroat trout populations. The plan calls for shooting some pelicans and applying oil to eggs to suffocate the embryos.

Musing out loud:
I wonder where I can send a contribution to eradicate the Idaho Fish and Game Commission?

They do seem to lean a bit to the disgusting side.

In other words... the pelicans are eating the planted fish...

But don't get too worked up guys... it's not eradication.... it's a management plan.

Is the guy that wrote "Everything You Need for Backpacking" on the commission?

My plan would come more under the heading of "Vector Control."

Maybe just need a Chickon Boo .
He sure did a number on the Marmot Dana Division.

On latest trip only saw one Marmot near Sister Lake and it went running like a scared little girl.
