New Book Pokes Fun at Endangered Species
SAN DIEGO, Sept. 11, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Do environmentalists have a sense of humor? We're about to find out, because this book is aimed right where their funny bone ought to be. The Hunter's Guide to Endangered Species by "The Old Biologist" is a humorous and satirical take on endangered species and environmental protection. It covers the gamut, poking fun at the science behind the endangered species issue, then explaining how and where (zoos and wildlife refuges, of course) to hunt these hapless creatures. It also looks at particular species, and describes the very human character flaws that got them into trouble in the first place. To top it off, the book has recipes for cooking them (the California Condor Soup is a real crowd pleaser).
