"Conserving" a species that is non-native and so destructive on the environment just so you can make money... I just can't wrap my head around that.
I suppose when you're in a state that's so deep in debt and can't seem to put together a budget that is even close to being balanced you'll try to squeeze money out of anything you can.
Its not really about conservation though and all about politics and money. One of the many (but main) reasons I won't go to California.
This is who we are, what we do.
