Letter — Wildlife Care opponent wanted rules followed

I would like to offer a few comments regarding the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care facility issue. Although I haven’t lived there for a long time, I grew up in Lake Tahoe and still have many good friends there.

My closest and dearest friend is John McDougall. As you all know, John asked the county to compel the center to abide by the terms of the permits they were issued in the ’80s. To me this sounds like a reasonable request. The operators admit that many of the structures were built without proper documentation.

In the middle of all this controversy is John McDougall. An average homeowner who wants nothing more than to live in and enjoy his home. It was never his aim to close down the facility. He supports the fine work they do and hopes they can continue this work in an appropriate location. As a nearly lifelong South Shore resident he wants only what is best for the area. This includes the care of sick, injured and orphaned animals.

I can only hope that the relocation will proceed without too much delay and that the work of the center will continue for many years to come.
