A woman from Los Angeles, who was a tree hugger and an
anti-hunter, purchased a piece of timberland, near Grants Pass, OR.
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."
