I’m thinking of wildlife lately. Including eagles. And about the Department of Natural Resources and how they are a governmental institution and so must follow government regulations both good and bad.
Years ago, a DNR count of eagles in the US and our county in particular didn’t mention the eagles nesting on the shore of our lake not far from our resort. We were surprised that they’d been overlooked. My husband called the DNR to inform them of the existence of those eagles. The DNR’s response was that they knew all about those eagles but they only counted eagles nesting on government land because that was how they were instructed to count eagles. Which meant that the very official count of all the eagles in the United States that was used to form policy was inaccurate, unrealistic and most likely seriously lower than the real count. We’ve never truly trusted any government figures since.
