Growing Wildlife for Roadkill to Collect “Scientific” Data

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

So, let me get this straight. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) grows wildlife, such as deer, moose, turkeys, bears, lynx, bobcats, snakes, and frogs in quantities such that people run over and kill them. (The more the merrier?) After the roadkill action, “citizen scientists,” as they are called (do they wear brown shirts?), move in and report the killing to wildlife biologists who collect data from the road-killed animals.


If none of this gives reason to pause, consider this idiotic venture as being “modeled” after KALIFORNIA! What could go wrong?

Evidently it’s impossible to collect data because you can’t drag a computer into the woods with you.
