My dog and I enjoyed many hours exploring Bayfront Park - and its ground squirrels, marine life, birds, children, grown-ups, and other dogs. In my opinion, using unannounced poison to eradicate animals who had found a home in a public park is horrifying. We have no information at all about how many other living, breathing creatures have been affected, and will continue to be affected. This is "our" government?

At least the state has decided to be a little generous with some environment(and it's inhabitants-excluding the Natives)in the central coast. Maybe someday the state will do something for the few natives left in the west coast who do have a significant contribution to share with the general public of this state.Long Live The Ohlone People of the Central Coast Bays and all.
Blessings and Thank you all for your consideration to not forget about us.
