"Terns and cormorants have flocked to Rice Island, East Sand Island and Miller Sands in the last decade. They like flat, open terrain where they can nest in large colonies. Now the same agency that created the problem is trying to solve it by killing 16,000 “salmon-chomping” double-crested cormorants. (See last Week’s Chinook Observer for the story.) Jeff Ruch, executive director of the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility calls ACOE’s plan “crazy, crude and cruel.”"
