The Mills of God Grind Slowly

While we have been trying to get the camera to work, we've also been trying to advance the conversation with the County and National Parks people, with the help of Congressman Chris Van Hollen's office (see this earlier post).  As always, things get bogged down with the question of jurisdiction - who gets to say whether or not we can put a trap out?

I talked to our contact in the Congressman's office today, and I'm glad to say that things do appear to be moving forward on this.  We aren't there, yet, but people are trying to make it happen.  There are important reasons for trying to get the County & National Parks to cooperate with us rather than just deploying a trap, such as the fact that we won't face huge fines and have a defense against the complaints we'll get (and we will get them - they are as much a part of the regular calls and correspondence we get as all the wonderful people who express their support).

  1. Where are you tryng to get it set up? Is it camera like Sam has or a webcam? I know someone who just started working at the Rock Creek Park Horse Center. I am going to ask her if she can post some flyers around there.

  2. I hope you are receiving help and that things are moving along. I hope you get the camera working and people will cooperate.

    All the best and good luck.
