Illegal Logging?

Environuts, ... er, green enthusiasts were up in arms when they discovered an illegal logging site in Poland's nature reserve. The police busted the culprit:

Environmentalists found 20 neatly stacked tree trunks and others marked for felling with notches at the beauty-spot at Subkowy in northern Poland.

But police followed a trail left where one tree had been dragged away - and found a beaver dam right in the middle of the river. A police spokesman said: "The campaigners are feeling pretty stupid. There's nothing more natural than a beaver."

beavers are not always 'natural' note the story where Canadian beavers were brought to South America and made a mess of things since they were not 'naturally' part of the life cycle there: "in 1946, ambitious breeders brought 25 pairs of Canadian beavers to the Argentinean province of Tierra del Fuego in hopes of spawning a fur industry in the area. Now both Argentina and Chile are suffering from an explosion of the dam-building Canadian icons. Far from their natural predators, the beavers have been able to reproduce without restraint, putting serious strain on the local ecosystem. "

gtron: I would tend to disagree with you, but only on a minor point. The beavers (and other misplaced wildlife) are always natural in my book. They always do as they always have done, and they are darn good at it too.

It's the human intervention that was "UNnatural" and rather poorly thought out, as is usually the case.

Don't blame the poor beavers. They are just trying to make a living.

Overenthusiastic enviro-tards chap my hide. This is a great story and I agree with LisaL. I would have loved to see their faces when they learned that beavers were responsible.

How much flatulance comes from the world's beavers?
They taste great and recycle quicker than beef cattle.

Perhaps they can be trained to make salt water dams and save the world from rising oceans.

Most of the environmental crowd are city folks and know very little about nature. They only get evolved in the green movement so they have something to try and empress their friends. They for the most part live a very small and boring life. They know so little about nature that is why any loony that makes it sound right (Gore) leads them to believe they are experts in all fields of study, when in reality they can barely understand what it is they are talking about.

Magic, well stated. You pretty much hit the nail on the head. Most of these people have an idealized view of the natural world that has no basis in reality.

These ignorant flaylanders dont know a thing about the enviroment they get the junk mail from various eco-freak groups urging them to send in $500 to oppose drilling or logging and their being ripped off by the green hucksters its better if they kept the money at home and no longer finance the wealthy green freak tree hugger liars
