But what about the snakes?

We don't need no stinking badgers.

On second thought, I think they like cutthroat trout too.

even though they opted against doing so in 2009 because they feared that badgers and skunks could hurt colonies of other nesting birds.

What could possibly go wrong?

Oh, they'll be eaten by the gorillas.

And then when wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death

Those sound like some mighty fierce animals. I would avoid this reservoir until they get things straightened out.

And if the badgers get out of control they'll just release the Dachshunds?

EggFool: Those sound like some mighty fierce animals. I would avoid this reservoir until they get things straightened out.

Badgers have a nasty temperament to begin with. Not wolverine type of angry, but won't retreat from a fight. Skunks not so much, for obvious reasons.

Although I'd like to see a recreation of that "never give up" poster of a pelican and a frog, but instead with a pelican trying to pull itself out of a badgers mouth with a skunk spraying on it's face.

Uh-oh. Rules 34 and 35.

Badgers and skunks already live in southern Idaho. I don't get it.

Interesting. Pelicans were only removed from the endangered species list about 6 months ago.

What a wonderful bird is the pelican
His beak can hold more than his belly can
He can hold in his beak
Enough food for a week
I just don't know how the hell he can.

Don't Shoot!!!!

Is the skunk helping the badger or the pelican? Or does he just happen to be there, stinking up the whole place?

This is important. You want your poster to make sense.

I saw a video where one ate a duck once. I was horrified. I hope it was fake, but I'm not sure.

I've never seen a badger do anything rude, actually.

Generally stinking up the place.

...sensitive populations of Yellowstone cutthroat trout.

Maybe if they were less sensitive they could find a fourth and play doubles.

Good then. I don't like pelicans OR badgers, so I would hate to think that either one had an ally.

No, it's getting stuff all over their faces. Gross!! You made it gross!

IIRC, pelicans are protected. In this case, you need to fight nature with nature, unless you want the wrath of the Western Watersheds Project, Snake River Alliance, et al. on your butt.

A similar issue happended with the Caspian Tern on Rice Island (nothing but a mound of dredged material from the Columbia River) that were eating a significant number of the treatened Salmon and Steelhead runs. (new window)

So basically, even though this is a much broader version of eradication, they backed it cause of the warm-fuzzy factor? Flawless logic bureaucrats, rather than give intelligent people with guns the ability to selectively remove birds, unleash hungry predators that don't care what they kill and have no reason to ever stop killing. I think I'm gonna go ahead and apply for a post-dated badger hunting license in Idaho. In three years they'll be looking for ways to fix that problem.

/If they really wanted to make sure the birds were looked after, tell people from PETA to do the killing. I guarantee they'd hate you for it. I also guarantee they wouldn't kill one more bird than they had to.
