A woman from the Oregon/Washington area, who was a tree hugger and an
anti-hunter,purchased a piece of timberland. There was a large tree on one
of the highest points in the tract. She wanted a good view of the natural
splendor of her land so she started to climb the big tree. As she neared the
top she encountered a spotted owl that attacked her.

In her haste to escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground and
got many splinters in her crotch. In considerable pain, she hurried to the
nearest doctor. She told him she was an environmentalist and an anti-hunter
and how she came to get all the splinters.

The doctor listened to her story with great patience and then told her to go
into the examining room and he would see if he could help her. She sat and
waited three hours before the doctor reappeared. The angry woman demanded,
"What took you so long?"

He smiled and then told her, "Well, I had to get permits from the
Environmental Protection Agency, the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land
Management before I could remove old-growth timber from a recreational area.
I'm sorry, but they turned me down."
