To the editor:
When you publish a Community Perspective article, it would be in your best interest to make sure that the person writing it is telling the truth about who and what he is. In Gordon Haber's article in your paper (March 16) he describes himself as an "independent wildlife scientist."
Nothing could be further from the truth. Over the years he has done what must be tens of thousands of dollars worth of work for groups like Friends of Animals! That's being independent?
Also, he has harassed law-abiding trappers to the point where they sued him and won large judgments against him. I wonder who paid those off?
Mr. Haber is not an independent anything and if you allow him to pass himself off as one, then your credibility will be as low as his!
