Burrowing Owl With Radio Collar - Arizona

AZ Game & Fish Photo - IF IT MOVES, RADIO COLLAR IT!

This seems to be the motto of wildlife biologists when ever they want to study Our wildlife.
These are the same misfits that brought us the Macho B Jaguar disaster.

This scene is repeated again and again across the United States. No bird or mammal is safe from these intrusive devices.

Wildlife biologists have this compulsive need to capture, handle and collar the animals they study. They are like trophy hunters that pose with their trophies. They always have time for a photo opportunity.

Google any mammal or bird study and you are likely to find a smiling wildlife biologist proudly displaying his/her latest radio-collared trophy.

They are always glove less and seem to have no concern about disease transmission to their captives. Bird Flu? These folks seem to be clueless. Capture Stress? Clueless again.

  1. All of this just really miffs my ruffles, I hate it. What on earth would they need to place one of those things on anything, least of all a Burrowing Owl...are you kidding me, outrageous. Our tax dollars certainly get abused, but the poor wildlife even more~
