It's easy to figure out which species is the dominant one at a wildlife rehabilitation center set up in the aftermath of the summer oil spill in southern Michigan

Since this occured within a short drive of where I live I have wittnessed the impact on wildlife the commnunities and the vegetation along the river. Beavers have moved to small creeks to get away from the destruction that can still be seen along the banks of the Kalamazoo River and downstream.

It's so sad, the animals who only want to live in peace are usually the most effected by man's incompetence.

Sadly noted, it is high time that this industry was bought to justice for the appauling number of spills in history, they have probably killed more animals than everyone else put together. Time for an alternative fuel is long overdue.
