I caught your show last night, "Predators of the West," and I was quite impressed. I liked the fact that the show presented all view points. I work with the Montana Conservation Corps. We are a non-profit statewide organization. In addition to conservation work across the state, we also have an education program for young adults. I would really enjoy using your show and transcripts as an educational tool. Is this OK? Second of all, could we purchase multiple copies of your show? If you need more information on our organization, please feel free to check out our website at www.mtcorps.org. Thanks for your time and keep up the good work.
Hi. I saw the "Predators" program on OPB. You don't know the half of what's going on in Oregon pertaining to state policy on depredation. Most of the wildlife services and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife [ODFW] don't want the public informed with the truth about game management or a lack of it in Oregon.
I am a professional bear trapper working the private sector. I have worked bear depredation for two decades in conjunction with ODFW. I am perplexed by state policy. I am currently working on a bear project in southern Oregon where I am only allowed to bait, snare and kill problem bears. You would not believe that ODFW and state police prohibit any alternative methods even though I can prove I can cut down on the killing by 80 percent. You just would be totally appalled to know what I do behind the scenes. . . . If Oregonians knew the truth about wildlife services, esp. ODFW, things would change.
Just saw the "Predators of the West" show on PBS. I was very impressed with the balanced presentation of the show.
I was most impressed with the participants' willingness to respect each other's viewpoints and general lack of extremism.
It seems as though our culture(s) may finally be growing up after all. Whew.
Nice job on the Predator special. Those of us who celebrate the Great Spirit of the Wild, hands-on, salute you for this well balanced piece on these magnificant beasts, their bio-diversity role, value & spirit. May all the beasts thrive on. Thank you.
Just watched your production of "Predators" on OPB here in Portland. Interesting that in all the so-called discussion that the basic right of self-defense was handily swept under the rug and that there was no good reason given by anyone as to just why we need these predators in the first place.
Ol' tyranasaurus rex was a predator and we have been living quite well without him and his buddies for some time now.
All in all, I think your production was about as useless as anything could be other than it exposed a lot of bureaucrats on big taxpayer-funded salaries who need some wacky issue like this to justify their existence.
