Tombstone VS Spotted Owl

Recommended Posts

Spotted owl Tombstone water war


The owl is a threatened species, and until a few days ago its presence in fire-scorched Miller Canyon was a matter of speculation. But now that it has surfaced, the owl could be a game-changer in the water war between the U.S. Forest Service and the Wild West city made famous by the 30-second gunfight at the O.K. Corral.

Tombstone is trying to repair a 26-mile pipeline that has brought mountain spring water into the city since 1881. It was damaged during last summer's Monument Fire and monsoon rains that brought mud, water and boulders crashing down the denuded slopes.

The Miller Peak Wilderness Area, where owls nest in the trees above Tombstone's pipeline, was hit particularly hard. Sections of pipeline simply vanished, and Tombstone's reservoir ran dry by August.

It's an illegal MEXICAN spotted owl to boot. They say it was high in a pine tree but the photo shows one in some other kind of tree. Many wars have been fought over issues less important than a city's water supply.

Offhand, I'd say that Tombstone should use heavy equipment despite what ANYBODY says AND I think the funds should come from FEMA. Has the Governor declared a disaster?

With all the Brain Washing going on, I really don't think the Common, Leach type Americans will play the game.

Some Gessers may put up a Resistance.

Russia,, China never invaded American because of the Fire Arms that they knew the common household had.

Those days are over.

They could Take the East Coast if they could get past the Gang Members that Blew off the Laws .

Thank God America has
