Department of Fish and Game Loses The Game, Now Wildlife
The definition of game: animals under pursuit or taken in hunting; especially : wild animals hunted for sport or food (2) : the flesh of game animals
The definition of wildlife: living things and especially mammals, birds, and fishes that are neither human nor domesticated
One word- the old word- has implications of hunting and sport. The other is merely living things and had no implication of sport or hunting.
This is a subtle way to slowly chip away at our rights to hunt. Call me paranoid but in a state with so many non-sportsman and antis I think my hypothesis is on the money. When a DFG commissioner loses his job for legally hunting a mountain lion in another state in Idaho, than you know this state is out of control. Let us not forget that certain hunts are now banned from using hounds. Its only a matter of time an attempt ban all types of hunting with a dog.
Given the current economic condition of California, is it prudent to change the name? Don't we have bigger issues to handle. How much will this name change cost? Remember all logos from banners, uniforms, hats, patches, decals, websites, etc. need to be eventually changed. All that is time and MONEY that this state does not have. Keep in mind all uniformed DFW workers pay for their uniforms and hats etc. (although they get a small stipend but I've been told it is not enough).
California again you prove how stupid you really are. It is no wonder every other state in this union hates your guts. And rightfully so. I labeled this under humor because California you're a joke.
