Kennedy Meadows

To the Editor:

I completely agree with the letter from Jan. 11, 2012, regarding manure at Kennedy Meadows. Manure is a terrible thing to see, all spread out in the last unspoiled area, only 100 feet from a human right, unmolested water. How dare those ineffective, unintelligent, unneeded government agencies fail to rally to such a holy, worthy cause. Maybe the California Water Resource Board should have been brought in to do nothing as well.

The only problem I see, which wasn't addressed in the letter - wildlife. How can this water source be protected from the scourge of those dirty creatures? Just look at how they live. It's not normal. Perhaps we could poison all wildlife in the area of the Stanislaus River. Yes, that's the only way. We can't just let nature be destroyed by wildlife or their leavings.
