Letter to the editor: Wildlife gone

To the editor:

As a resident of Springwood Heights for over 30 years, I watched as the trees on the corner of Clinton Parkway and Crestline were destroyed. I watched the coyote as it ran from the area pacing behind my fence. I watched as the small fox ran from the area. I watched the hawks leaving the area, possibly leaving their young behind. I didn’t see the owls; hopefully they made it out of the destruction. I wondered if any protected animals were bulldozed over. The quail I put in that area are gone. With no warning, this was a shameful and spiteful decision.
