Among my other interests, I follow efforts to eradicate non-native species. I'm happy to see that the National Park Service is going to eliminate nonnative deer from Point Reyes. I love Point Reyes. It's a fascinating place, and I've probably hiked every trail in the park.

I only wish they'd be more aggressive about these nonnative deer. Shoot them all and shoot them now! It would be better for the ecosystem to get rid of them sooner, not later. The Marin Humane Society is just wrong. (They should focus on cats and dogs and not say stupid things about wild animals.)

Nonnative feral pigs on the Channel Islands off Los Angeles pose even more severe problems for the whole ecosystem. They should also be shot.
