Curiosity got the best of me so I did some research and looked this little creature up:
It turns out this mouse has been on the endangered species list since the 1970’s, to quote the article, and already has “protected habitat within numerous Bay Area wildlife refuges” as well as a number of other protected locations as mentioned in the Wikipedia article.
I think I smell a San Francisco rat (or mouse)!!!!!!
If this “mouse” already has numerous areas of protected habitat, what makes it so critical to add $30 million hidden in the Democratic Stimulus Bill to an already overstretched federal budget in a time of crisis to “add more protection” to this … “mouse”?
I think the real question is, “WHO is going to be paid $30 million for marsh land only a rat … excuse me … mouse would love?”
This really stinks!
