Bald Eagles & Buddhist Monks

Above Dick Cheney Vice-President of the United States “bags” a Bald Eagle shortly after it was taken off the Endangered Species list.

Hmm, VP bags the national bird…what is up with that? The Bald Eagle is also the symbol on the Seal of the President of the United States…

Here is a commentary from Unconfirmed Sources on Cheney’s hunting the Bald Eagle.…and another speculation from the UK…in case you didn’t catch it, the photo and story is a spoof surrounding the news regarding the birds being removed from the endangered species list.

Whoops, guess this should have gone up at Big Bear Politics!

Our current administration has not been very environmentally friendly– read more in this commentary.

Locally, many of us believe the Bald Eagles have flown the coop (numbers are down) due to the increased development–anyone remember the fact that Castle Glen area was at one time posted as Eagle Habitat?

Read more about the local Bald Eagles at this link to the Big Bear Grizzly.

In REAL News…

The Buddhist Monks have finally been successful in having a contractor show up to help them finish the exterior of the new building. The project had a fast start but the exterior work quickly grounded to a halt when the local roofer didn’t ever show. They ended up hiring someone from down the hill. The exterior stucco guy never returned their calls either but it looks like they finally found someone else. I’ll have snaps for you shortly.

    Well, that could be a matter of opinion…*snicker* but yes, better than shooting his buddies…still I worry about the symbolism in shooting a national bird especially since he is inside the White House…good thing it is a spoof.

    Man…what else does this guy want? All the time shooting animals just for the fun of it. He should know that after his shooting a person that more care has to be taken and yet again we see him trying to be hunter supremo.

    The photo was a spoof but I have to agree with you about the horrible environmental example the current administration sets.
