When the colonial government proposed to reserve two thirds of the forest in 1905 and stop changing the cultivation, hunting and harvesting of forest products,. GOMA, Democratic Republic of Congo (Reuters) - The Congolese military said Thursday it was hunting rebels deep in forests and mountains along the border with Rwanda and Uganda, the insurgents' last hiding places after they were driven out of cities they maintained during a 20-month rebellion. Ugandan mediators said talks had resumed on Wednesday in Kampala between the government and the M23 rebels, but the UN,. M23 officials said they withdrew from cities under diplomatic pressure.
Bertrand Bissimwa, political leader of M23, told French radio RFI that military losses would not alter their demands in the talks. Clashes were reported in the hills above Bunagana, the last rebel-controlled city to fall this week, and around Runyoni, a hill that was the birthplace of the rebellion last year. At its peak last November, the M23 occupied the region's capital, Goma, after the army fled and the rebels marched in front of the forces. This defeat led to the UN,.
Strengthening the strength and mandate, a review of the command of the Congolese army and the pressure on the support of the rebels, changing the course of the struggle. While the deep roots of the conflict, ranging from the presence of Rwandan Hutu rebels, ethnic tensions and latent conflicts over land and minerals, remain, the pace of the Congolese army's advance is unprecedented. Experts and human rights groups have repeatedly accused Rwanda of supporting M23, the latest in a series of rebellions in eastern Congo that has been linked to Rwanda's political and military elite. Rwanda, which has repeatedly sent its army to Congo under the pretext of hunting down the Hutu rebels who fled there after the 1994 genocide, denies the accusation.
Residents took to the streets of Bunagana on Wednesday to welcome the Congolese army, which is better known for its chaotic command and lack of discipline than for its slight advance. Diplomats say political agreement along with military achievements is needed to ensure that rebels do not reverse progress, as they have in the past, due to frustrations over the Kinshasa government's mismanagement in its remote regions. Lieutenant Colonel Paddy Ankunda, spokesman for the Ugandan army and the mediation team, said progress was being made in talks between the two sides, although doubts remained as to which rebels would receive an amnesty. Fatou Bensouda, prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, warned on Wednesday that he could expand investigations into crimes in the Congo and called for all those responsible to be prosecuted.
Peacekeepers have confirmed that they are investigating reports of mass graves in areas vacated by rebels.

Scott Walker Campaigned with Commitment to Fix Deer Management.
Once elected, he kept that promise by appointing a deer trustee to evaluate his state's DNR. The trustee's final report noted that by not properly communicating with hunters and not involving them in determining solutions, the DNR had lost credibility (Kroll 201.A similar setback may be occurring in Pennsylvania). Hunters aren't really the problem, you'll see more on the anti-hunting side advocating childish and ineffective solutions to the deer problem, such as prescribing birth control pills at a great cost (for taxpayers) and with little or no effect. In states, such as Michigan and Texas, where there is a shortage of public land, this means that landowners offer their hunting rights.
No species native to vertebrates in the eastern United States has a more direct effect on habitat integrity than white-tailed deer. I live in Connecticut and hunt deer, so I know a lot about the negative impacts of too many deer. One of the questions in my mind is whether, even with a careful, strategic and educational approach, a sufficient proportion of hunters can be convinced that the lowest deer populations are in their long-term and enlightened self-interest. What deer, there are too many hunters who kill everything that breathes, there are no deer, there are too many people.
They organized hunting seasons and, in turn, a number of deer that could be hunted each “season”, a practice that helped reduce deer populations. It will be difficult to overcome traditional hunter concepts of proper deer management, since it is not intuitive for most hunters that fewer game animals are desired. David Anderson believes that this is an insufficient count and cites a death toll greater than 5,000 by the Mau Mau. As long as hunters and wildlife watchers continue to demand to see more deer every time they go out into the forest, and as long as politicians willing to help are eager to give them what they want, the balance will remain difficult to achieve.
Rules that drastically reduce the population will almost certainly provoke a backlash from hunters, who can appeal to their respective legislatures to overturn regulations they consider harsh. . .
