This was supposed to be a completely different story, but I will save that for later.

 

I went to Humber Bay East today to photograph my beloved Grebes.  I came across this Cormorant and took the opportunity to photograph it as well as the Grebes.  Two women approached me while I was at the Park today and after I spoke to them my blood was boiling!

 

Look closely at the Cormorant....

A fisherman purposely tried to snag the bird and reel it in with his fishing line and broke its wing!!!  :angry:  This poor creature, unfortunately, has a slow and painful death ahead as he cannot fly and most likely cannot feed.  He is simply sitting on any empty Grebe nest until he starves to death.

 

I cannot tell you the outrage I feel right now.  But it doesn't stop here..

 

Another fisherman tried to snag the Red Neck Grebe female while she was on her nest.  The Grebes have laid more eggs and have another nest of chicks on the way.  I will post these images later in another forum and put the link here. 

 

http://www.planetnik...showtopic=23555

 

Boaters have been coming into the no boating area and disturbing the nest because... they are entitled!

 

The two women I mentioned, Mary and Irene, are two very special people.  Irene saved the Grebe from being snagged and comes to the park two times a day to stop any more nonsense from any more like minded morons.  Mary, has have verbal exchanges with the boaters and has also chased away the fishermen who are relentlessly trying to snag the mother Grebe.

 

I wrote a letter to the editor of the Toronto Star today and send their contact information and pictures in the hope they will put pressure on the City of Toronto to send inspectors and or the Police.

 

Ruined my day, which was going really, really well! <_< !

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

I am HOPING in a big way, we have a similar law....  I have started the wheels rolling on finding out and getting some sort of law enforcement to get involved.

You can call (if you have them, we do) forest/nature center and they should be able to know who to send to help the bird. So, it doesn't pass. One of our local vets normally will help the nature center nurse them back. I zoo may also help.

This post brought a "flash back" from many years ago, (in my 20's so a long long long time ago  :) )

I was fishing with lures down our south coast,

As would have it, I caught a penguin!!!!!!!! oops! Got him in carefully got him off and safely released back to the water

As always, I had an audience, started to look like a lynching party!  :(

I retreated to vehicle and left,

If I had seen penguins in the first place, I would not have fished that area

 

I do see some cormorants when out in the boat but am very careful and pray that it doesn't happen again

Accidents do happen but anybody targeting animals in this way should be "justifiable homicide"

Same here in Memphis we are not perfect but the Tenn Fish and Wildlife Officers will haul your butt off in a heart beat! This is very sad maybe the Comorant can be saved and nursed to health in a rehab center.

We've got an animal rescue center here at the Penitentiary Glen nature preserve in Kirtland, OH. They might know of a place in Toronto.

("Penitentiary" in the name refers to the fact that there is only one way in or out of that canyon. If you get lost, you're trapped unless you can rope out.)

"Go ahead punk make my day" 

 

"Now, I know what you're thinking, Did he fire six shots or only five? To tell you the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you have to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky?...Well? Do ya, punk?"

No sighting this morning!  I think either ... it was rescued ...  or ....

 

I did a good walk around the park this morning, just to be sure.  I am hoping it was rescued.  No sign of Fishermen this morning.

 

On the Evening News yesterday!...... City of Toronto is increasing patrols in Parks against Dog Owners who do not put them on a LEASH!! $360 fine!!  Gone up!

 

Hundreds of complaints logged at City Hall.

 

FINALLY!

You can call (if you have them, we do) forest/nature center and they should be able to know who to send to help the bird. So, it doesn't pass. One of our local vets normally will help the nature center nurse them back. I zoo may also help.

 

You said what I was thinking, Dennis.  If Toronto is like Vancouver, there should be a couple of wildlife rescue groups.  That said, it sounds like Art is on this.  Don't give up, my friend.

 

Kudos, to those two ladies, Art.  There is a special place in heaven for folks like them.

 

Finally, as a boater, I'm embarrassed.  No boating zones mean just that:  NO BOATING!  I would love to smugly say that only dumb power boaters do poop like this, but I have seen incredibly stupid moves from the odd sailor or two as well.  Gives the rest of us a bad name.

Mark, you are a responsible boater.  The people I am talking about here have no respect for the law and I am sure, are not representative of the typical boater or fishermen.

 

I have some good news....

 

The Police have gotten in touch with the two women I mentioned!  They will be patrolling both the park and the water way around the Grebe nesting area!  :)  I am delighted to hear this!

Thanks, Phil.  I found it very satisfying.  Although, no culprit has been caught.

 

I have managed to mobilize 4 women who live in the area who are keeping a sharp lookout.  Two are all witnesses, the other two are friends and they are on a mission. 

 

We are going to try and get the city to put up "No Fishing, No Boating" signs in the area and add a stiff penalty for violation.  I will be quite proud of myself if this is accomplished.

 

You have no idea what a thrill it is to simply be able to go down to the Lake, park, walk on the boardwalk and witness Nature in its unadulterated glory, peacefully co-existing in this environment.  How many can witness they early life cycle of a pair of birds that have been driven away from the area due to the challenges of nesting they face?  And yet, here is an extremely successful pair who have added 7-8 new birds to the area in one season!

 

To have A-O's ruin that really, really gets my dander up. You have no idea how deep my desire is to get these clowns.  I really value this on many levels and feel I am obligated to use what ever resources I can to protect them.

 

I will be honest, I have little faith in the system or the clowns in it.  The interest level isn't there... but.... that also challenges me.

 

So, I will continue to push for this. 

 

I plan to write a new series of Letters to all the cast of characters involved later in the week.

 

As soon as something concrete happens, I will post it here.

 

Thanks! :)
