RE:Escapees or farmed A/S

This is an important issue and one would hope there would be a summit held by Babbit or someone to mediate the international repercussions of the matter. Although much more subdued, there is a US / Canada tension in the PNW as well (as you know).

Although some would argue against big government, this is specifically the kind of chaos that needs a higher authority to align. The tribes are running amok in spite of each other and those with a conscience get burned.

The statistic of over a million escapees a year is staggering and unacceptable. This is clearly a new kind of pollution - gene pollution. It should be taken with as much seriousness as any chemical spill.

Who do we need to rattle to make something happen?
