Bo Petersen’s Feb. 2 article regarding cormorants brings to mind an incident that happened to me.

I stocked my two-acre pond with bream and bass, and enjoyed feeding them, catching them to eat and letting my friends have a good time doing the same.

One morning I looked out my window and saw about 50 cormorants swimming on my pond. They stayed all day.

Needless to say, I no longer have any fish in my pond. The pond has never recovered.

So, I am in favor of S.C. Department of Natural Resources authorizing a management shoot. I understand this is not a hunting trip by management action.
