    Hunting for a Director

    From the Humane Society:

    Today, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) expressed its strong disappointment that Interior Secretary Gale Norton has named Matthew J. Hogan to be acting director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

    Norton announced the appointment yesterday, following last week's resignation of Director Steve Williams. Hogan was formerly the chief lobbyist for Safari Club International (SCI), an extreme trophy hunting organization that advocates the killing of rare species around the world.

    "Having a Safari Club lobbyist in charge, even temporarily, of the federal agency that is supposed to protect endangered species is precisely the wrong course to pursue for any Administration," said Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The HSUS. "Someone with a true wildlife conservation ethic, not an allegiance to the trophy hunting industry, should be nominated by President Bush and confirmed by the U.S. Senate for the permanent director position as soon as possible."


    Now, don't get me wrong, I appreciate a good recipe for Groundhog

    or Cream Muskrat Casserole

    but seriously, I can't see why the agenda of SCI should get propped to the top of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. I mean, they promote elephant hunting.

    At least we don't have wild elephants in America.

    By the way, there's always THIS guy for the Director job at Fish and Wildlife if Hogan doesn't pan out...
