This is sad to me as this is where a lot of my family settled and homestead land many years ago. Wal-mart is notorious for ruining the environment. One was built in Rohnert Park where beaitiful green fields use to be and foxes, deer, hares , falcons and hawks lived. I rescued a fox in their parking lot because they said he was confused and perhaps had distemper. This was his territory and why would he be confused. Another time I saw two young boys in the field next to the new Costco throwing rocks at an animal and I looked and it was a young Perrigrine Falcon. I stopped them and caught the bird and brought him to bird rescue and I told these boys that this would be the last bird like this that they will ever see in this area again and that their ,mean actions will return to them oneday! I was so mad! He recovered and was released in Napa, thank god. Everyday we are encroaching on our wildlife, wetlands are being covered up with cement. I've seen many buried. I pray that things will change and that god will get mad and show his wrath at the idiots that keep wreaking Havoc on this beautiful earth of ours! Sorry this is so long, I am sick of Wal-Mart.
