US Fish and Wildlife Service seeking public comment

An open comment period ends this month for a wide range of issues regarding cormorants, a predatory bird that is classified as protected by federal law but is numerous in northern Door County. US Fish and Wildlife Service wants to hear from the public about increased population control measures, including lethal steps that go beyond the current policy of coating the eggs in oil to arrest development. Liberty Grove Administrator Bud Kalms says cormorants are known for their stench, but their impact on the area’s ecosystem is even more damaging to the town.
