Gulf Oil Spill: Wildlife in Peril

The Gulf of Mexico oil spill continues to extend, BP continues their ineptitude, and concern is growing for the wildlife that stand in its path. Many of the coastal animals are currently in their reproductive seasons. All of them are innocent victims, bringing food back to their young, unaware that it’s toxic. Landing where they cannot hope to fly away. The scope of this tragic disaster is far from being known. But the words “dead zone” may well apply to the Gulf of Mexico for years to come. BP’s assets should be seized by the U.S. government.
