This illustrates the total disregard for other creatures and the health of our ecosystem current in much of our government.

"Hanson says the agency is unnecessarily clearing dead wood and obliterating crucial habitats for owls, woodpeckers and small mammals."

"But the agency is painting an incomplete picture, Hanson and other scientists say. Trees may not look pretty after a fire, they say, but removing them is far more damaging to the environment than the fire itself."
