California spends nearly a quarter million to move a grocery store shrub

April 17, 2012 | By JOSHUA THOMPSON

Stop me if you heard this one before.   How did the shrub cross the road?  By calling CalTrans, US Fish & Wildlife, California Department of Fish & Game, the Wild Equity Institute, the Center for Bilogical Diversity, the California Native Plant Society, and spending $205,000 tax dollars.

When the Endangered Species Act meets big government, bad things happen.  Maybe Caltrans didn’t know you could get the shrub at this local nursery for $15.98?
