Maine Deer $0, Loons $6.5 Million

I suppose still relying on global warming to save Maine’s deer herd, the species gets basically nothing while loon birds get $6.5 million from a grant. While I have nothing against loons, a statement found at MPBN kind of stretches the truth a bit, in my opinion.

The bird is under threat from pollution, disease and development.

I guess, “under threat” is subjective and one could conclude that everything in existence might be “under threat” from something. But, loons in Maine are everywhere. So much so that to some they have become a nuisance and are putting strains on fisheries.

There is such a thing as over protection but what does that matter when there’s $6.5 million dollars available to stay in business.
