U.S. FISH & WILDLIFE SERVICE UNDER SIEGE
Charged with mismanagement and theft by U.S. Congress, GAO and Sportsmen

This is a special report of the startling activities of the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service. It includes actions uncovered by an ongoing audit begun in
1996 by the U.S. General Accounting Office of theft and misuse of
sportsmen's Federal Aid dollars by USFWS; sometimes funding animal rights
groups; and double standards, bias and inconsistencies of their management
programs toward fish and wildlife and the nation's sportsmen. These actions
reflect disdain and contempt for sportsmen, the conservation movement and
our nation's resources.
