What worries many of the state`s hunters and anglers is the uncertain future of the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF). Some Virginians already have begun to compare it to the highly politicized Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources under that state`s governor, Parris N. Glendening, a thinly disguised animal rights advocate who many fear is staffing his natural resources offices with people who share his vision of "nonconsumptive" use of the state`s natural resources and "nonlethal" management of wildlife. Read that to mean that hunting is politically incorrect and that only dandelion pickers and tree huggers are welcome to Maryland`s forests.
