Goose logs

 

 

 

 

 

MCKENZIE BRIDGE: The start of logging at the Goose Timber Sale in the Willamette National Forest north of McKenzie Bridge has generated a response from environmentalists. The Cascadia Forest Defenders (CFD) have maintained a tree sit protest inside the Goose Timber Sale since late May and CFD reported evidence of logging on Tuesday, October 17th.
The group said their tree sit was searched and extensively photographed this Wednesday by Lane County Sherriff’s Deputies and Forest Service Officers with a promise to “see you tomorrow." This is the first contact CFD has had with law enforcement since the tree sit protest began six months ago.

The man — who was calling himself Dan Cooper, although he’s mostly known today as D.B. Cooper — had been pretty happy a minute or two before, when stewardess Tina Mucklow brought him all the stuff he’d demanded: four parachutes and $200,000.
