Washington DC: The US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has removed the North American Blue Tailed Nimby from the Endangered Species List (ESL).
A spokesperson for the USFWS indicated that removing the Nimby from the ESL was predicated on an unexpected population explosion on both the US east and west coasts, particularly in blue states. Nimby repopulation has been better than the gray wolf repopulation in the various US national parks.
Nimby have been observed congregating around proposed airports, military bases, power plants, sewer plants, recycling centers, landfills and garbage incinerators.
Environmentalists and PETA petitioned the USFWS to reconsider their decision, as Nimby hunting by licensed sportsman could now be resumed. These groups argue that once again the Nimby may become endangered.
Also at cross purposes were the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and environmentalists. FDA has been advocating that farms be fenced to keep crops free of waste products, whereas environmentalists want the Nimby to be able to run free.
