Maine Fish and Game Fixes Poorly Crafted 2011 Bear Harvest Report

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A few days ago I posted an article about the 2011 Maine black bear harvest report from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW). In that report I said, “In addition, the quality of the blurry post on the MDIFW website appears to be that of a second grader. Is it possible that someone’s dog ate their homework? Maybe MDIFW has spent so much money on non game programs and watching bears sleep in winter dens, they can no longer afford to post quality reports on their website? Should we expect the website to be taken down soon also?”

And yes, I was chastised, once again, by some who thought I was being too hard on the folks at MDIFW. Whether I was or wasn’t, it appears MDIFW agreed that the report lacked the quality typical of what you would find on the website. The blurry, gray and black report was removed and replaced with clear and sharp text and a dash of subtle coloring to assist in distinguishing between numbers, etc.

Thank you MDIFW for doing this and keep that dog away from your homework!
