    They can’t do this sort of research in Utah; Utah is GOP country and McCain said this kind of research wastes money.

    Interesting. I once knew a guy who did this exact thing in the White Rock Wildlife Management Area in Arkansas.

    I was going to make mikarooni’s comment, but he beat me to it. Informed decisions just waste taxpayer money.

    There is certainly a healthy population in the Tavaputs Plateau region in East Central Utah. Nearly everythime I floated the Green River through Desolation and Gray’s Canyons we’d see at least one bear.

    This research is okay as long as we are not doing paternity tests or crime scene investigations.
