Bald Eagle taken off the Endangered & Threatened Species List

From the US Department of the Interior:

Quote:
WASHINGTON, D.C – Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne announced the removal of the bald eagle from the list of threatened and endangered species at a ceremony at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. After nearly disappearing from most of the United States decades ago, the bald eagle is now flourishing across the nation and no longer needs the protection of the Endangered Species Act.

“Today I am proud to announce: the eagle has returned,” said Secretary Kempthorne. “In 1963, the lower 48 states were home to barely 400 nesting pairs of bald eagles. Today, after decades of conservation effort, they are home to some 10,000 nesting pairs, a 25-fold increase in the last 40 years. Based on its dramatic recovery, it is my honor to announce the Department of the Interior’s decision to remove the American Bald Eagle from the Endangered Species List

I guess that means it's time to cock my gun and go look for some balds eagles lol.

If I fill half my tank with Shell V-Power gas and the other half with Chevron with Techron gas will I have V-TEC gas?

Yeah it says in the article that the eagle is still protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, something along those lines.

Ok ok, well maybe the gun is a little extreme. Maybe I will try and catch one and hump it to death :P
