Do you prefer spots or stripes on owls? The federal government favors spots and is shooting striped owls! Here to comment on this strange policy is Dr. Bonner Cohen, senior policy analyst for CFACT: “Spotted and striped wood owls are so closely related that they are able to breed and produce fertile offspring that look just like spotted owls, and it is theorized that they were once the same species of wood owl to begin with. So it is absurd to use taxpayer dollars to kill one to save the other. Let nature run its course and the remaining owl species will be stronger and more resilient.”
