And now this from the Econot website: It appears the environmentalist ethic is being sorely tested these days from a range of unanticipated quandaries.  Take, for example, an instance in Germany where local officials are at loggerheads with environmentalists over the need to kill an endangered bird.  And the reason?  Because these birds are eating an endangered fish – so which one to save? A similar situation exists on the Chesapeake Bay, where the Fund for Animals is attempting to block the governments efforts to reduce the number of mute swans because they are, you guessed it, eating up another endangered species, this time a certain grass.  It appears, as Kermit the frog once said, it isn’t easy being green.
