Badgers? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Badgers!

Nothing cute about Wolverines. The lil’ buggers would shred you into confetti if they had their way. But here at PTB we love us the furry animals so this piqued our interest.

Wolverines were thought to have been driven from the Sierra long ago because of “human activity”. Guess they just couldn’t stand all those folks partyin’ up at Tahoe on New Years Eve.

Developers fear the fuzzy lil’ bastards will be put on the ESL and that would affect land-use decisions. Less wildlife…more nightlife is their motto. And that’s the crux of our biscuit.

When you hear politicians talking about “going green”…they’re not talking about the environment, they’re talking about money. When you hear politicians talking about “wildlife”…they’re not talkin’ ‘bout critters, they’re talking about Sen. Larry Craig’s “wide stance.”

If a developer wants to slap together another McMansion or strip mall up in the Sierra, there isn’t a wolverine or a bear or a wolf or a moose or a person that’ll be able to stop it because NOTHING gets in the way of “progress”.
