There was a Time magazine piece that discussed
this a couple of years back. Article was written
over big TPW bust out of BB. Sorry I cant be
more specific...look back at least 4-6 years.
Big bust supposedly originated from the question
of declining rodents in the area. Supposedly, TPW
noticed a very low # of rodents......investigation
led to discovery of poachers working the park----
I think it may be a bit of fluff.....rodent cycles
are a natural part of our environment..well
documented scientifically----probably was a
completely natural pop. decline..... Information
was possibly designed to enhance TPW image for the
article. i can't back this up, just an opinion.jw
