Minneapolis Star and Tribune series on rampant ATV abuse
Every once and a while you run into some truly good local journalism. The Star and Tribune has just made that come true for me with a three part series on ATV use in Minnesota. Anyone who wonders what is really happening out there needs to read this series. To me the results are obvious. Our State Parks are vastly underfunded. Our Conservation Officers are cut way back and spread incredibly thin, our paved cycling trails are falling apart, yet for some reason the MN DNR is still putting heavy resources towards the most destructive practice to hit our forests since the 1870's logging boom.
