WORD OF MOUTH
Tell your friends, family and children in schools that the DNR is killing our wildlife. The officials at the DNR making these decisions only care about their jobs and how to make their jobs look necessary. Their decisions are for now and not the future. Our children are the ones who will suffer. It isn't just about the mute swans being eradicated. It is about the DNR trying to get wolves on the game list to be hunted. It is about the 20,000 Cormorants they have already been killing. It is about the selling of all our mineral rights so that companies can now drill for oil and gas around our local lake. The list goes on...
Money and politics are the main inspiration of this 'so-called' government agency. If we do not stand up to them and ask questions, future generations will be going to museums to see their wildlife.
Thank you for your support!
