A most disturbing article on the local owl dilemma by Zach St. George ("Shooting Owls," Sept. 1)! As long as capitalism or even quasi-capitalism remains the paradigm, there is little hope for the natural world!!
Greed and profit rule supreme and assure the eventual destruction of most prime habitat for all native species. Then we opt for abominable band-aid solutions such as shooting competing species. Why not eliminate a few capitalists and see what that leaves us? Possibly a better future.
