Few years back in Idaho a guy who went to school with the two local ranchers went out to do his duty as a peace officer and prevent the law from being broken. The two other old guys were opening the dam to let irrigation water into their properties. It was a token bit of activism, as both were soon to auction off their places.
The sheriff just watched them and when they left he reset the locks. So he let them have their say and be proud that they felt like they did something in the face of the devastation they must have felt.
This was all to save some salmon.
I have never had a shortage of salmon, never knew any in danger, though there aren't the same species of anything from time to time and then there will be more abundance like when the loggers came in and created a natural fish hatchery but eliminated other fish.
I think man and nature can get along with a little common sense. So rare these days No sense killing a human (literally or figuratively) over a salmon. Maybe we can all live together. That is my hope.
But anyway that year Larry Craig was still in office and you bet I voted for him who always had a more common sensed approach to wild life than slash and burn or doing away with all human interests.
