Spotted Owl Good. Barred Owl?? Shoot It!!!

It's not hard to believe, given that it's the Left...

...According to the Oregonian, the spotted owl (Strix occidentalis) ...has continued to die off. Turns out the major culprit in its demise was evolution — in the form of the barred owl, a closely related species that is bigger, more omnivorous, and generally all around superior to the spotted owl. Barred owls (Strix varia), also native to North America, seize spotted owl habitat and out-compete the endangered species.

Well, there's a solution!!

Barred owls attack other owls that invade its territory. So steely eyed, shotgun-toting environmentalists plan to play owl calls over loudspeakers, and when the evil barred owl comes to investigate — pow!!
