    Tree Hugger

    A rich lady from California, who was a tree hugger and a
    vociferous anti-hunter, purchased a piece of timber land
    in Oregon. There was a large tree on one of the highest
    points in the tract. She wanted to get a good view 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 lady slid down the tree to
    the ground and got many splinters in her private parts.
    In considerable pain, she hurried to the nearest country
    doctor.

    Being a hunter himself, 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 for three hours before the doctor
    reappeared. The angry lady 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 and I'm sorry, they all turned me down.
