Re: Wisconsin Final Report
my favorite part of that whole Wisconsin report.....
"Dr. Alt is a well-known wildlife biologist who, although originally
recognized as an accomplished predator (black bear) researcher, was appointed by Governor
Tom Ridge to head the white-tailed deer program at the Pennsylvania Game Commission. The
purpose of the appointment was to evaluate Pennsylvania's deer management program and to
coordinate necessary changes for improvement. Governor Ridge selected Dr. Alt because of his
extensive experience with public relations and mass media to communicate with the public about
wildlife management issues and his demonstrated success to solicit public support for necessary changes. The positive impacts of Dr. Alt's work in Pennsylvania are widely acknowledged as
significant and long-lasting."
