Fox, Meet Henhouse

An extremist trophy hunter is now the acting director of our US Fish and Wildlife Service. I'm just waiting for them to put a slum lord in charge of Housing and Urban Development, or a former meat-packing executive in charge of OSHA. It'll be any day now, at this rate.

Update: The Rogue Slayer Law Student points up more information about Hogan and his affiliations, also noting that the Fish and Wildlife Service is helping promote the Department of the Interior's praise of drilling in the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge.
