As a professional wildlife biologist, it often puts me on the fringes of a lot of diverse topics, it's just the way of the profession. However... there is a particular fringe that is becoming an increasing sore spot that folks seem to be absolutely okay with ignoring. The notion is simple.

If you do not grow your own weed... your joint means dead wildlife.

The shot heard round the world in the wildlife field was the discovery of Pacific Fishers dead from rodenticide that was traced to an illegal marijuana grow. For more informed reading on the topic, see here:

news.wildlife.org/featured/sil…

I know some of the people working on this particular project, and the rather depressing conclusions it has for it showing up in other species. What would happen if one of my precious spotted owls found a dying mouse? It'd be dead before you could say 'clearcut'.

The scientist in charge of the study is now apparently the target of some of these growers, as they killed his dog with some of the same rodenticides. I think it sends a clear message for exactly how they feel about my wildlife resources over the money they make off weed:

Anyone invested in wildlife resources should be deeply offended. I know I am. I will be ruthlessly and happily seeking out and reporting all grows I find this summer while I am on tour for spotted owls.

I'm a professional wildlife biologist, and hobbyist artist. When not found on survey for spotted owls, I can be found roaming the hills hunting bears, deer, and feral pigs.

IT REPRESENTS MY STATE OF MIND. ACCURATELY.

(By the way... are you perchance going to be open for drawings/commissions anytime soon?)

I'm fine with waiting. I want some silly doodles of Metis and Delton. Doing deer-y things. Or in Metis' case, trying to be a deer, but failing and being a deer-owl.
