The ruling, the second of its kind in recent weeks, is ex- pected to lead to an announce- ment of an early byelection in the Winnipeg riding of St. Boniface. Mr. Marion defeated Larry Desjardins, minister of tourism, recreation and cultural affairs in the last NDP government, by one vote in a race that was finally decided in the Manitoba Court of Appeal. The election of the NDP's Harvey Patterson in the Win- nipeg riding of Crescentwood was voided recently by the court, but the decision is being appealed.

Natural predation con- stitutes an important cause of pheasant mortality. However, while the impact of predation is serious for the individual bird which is killed and eaten, it is not so serious to the welfare of the pheasant pop- ulation as a whole. Predators are much like people in their hunting habits. When pheasants are abundant and readily available they will be heavily hunted by both groups When pheasants are scarce, the law of diminishing returns operates for two- legged, four-legged and wing- ed predators alike. They give up hunting pheasants and seek out other species which are more abundant. In the case of natural predators, such species com- monly include mice, rabbits, muskrats and other rodents. As rodents are generally more abundant from year-to-year than upland game birds such as pheasants, they constitute the bulk of a natural predator's diet. Careful study along 511 miles of fox trails within good pheasant range in Michigan revealed that 16 pheasants, 2 ruffled grouse. 3 muskrats, 23 shrews. 35 rabbits and over 400 mice were killed and eaten. Examination of fox stomachs in South Dakota showed that mice and rabbits occurred in 56 per cent and 37 per cent of the stomachs respectively compared to pheasant remains in only 28 per cent of the stomachs. Predator-prey relation- ships are not as sim- ple as many people would like to believe Predation is an important ecological function as it produces a "sanitation effect" whereby the sick, disabled or otherwise unfit animals fall prey to predators or die from other causes while the healthy animals survive. As many different species of predators compete for the same prey, the elimination of one species, such as the fox or coyote, through an extensive predator control program often fails to produce the desired result a substantial increase in pheasant numbers. This is due to a "compen- satory effect" whereby other causes of mortality operate more strongly to compensate for the reduced mortality from one specific cause to BLOCK BROS.

Thus, in an experiment where 80 per cent of the foxes were removed from one area while none were removed from another area nearby, pheasant numbers and hunting success remained the same in both area. For predator control programs to be effective in increasing pheasant numbers significantly, control measures must be directed at many different predator species at the same time and over a large land area. Such programs are extremely cost- ly and their desirability is highly questionable. Is the increase in pheasant numbers which might result from an intensive predator control program worth the costs associated with it? Remember that by greatly reducing the numbers of predators which prey primari- ly upon rodent species, the numbers of rodents will increase more than those of pheasants. What increased damage no crops will result from increased rodent numbers? Many people value the sight of red-tailed hawk, great horn- ed owl or coyote equally as much as a pheasant from a wildlife appreciation view- point. Can we justify substan- tially reducing the numbers of many other wildlife species in order to increase the numbers of a single species? These are questions which society as a whole must decide. When making such judgments, one should realize that a better alternative exists than predator control to increase pheasant pop- ulations. Pheasant losses due to hunting and predation only become serious when they reduce the number of birds to less than that which the habitat can support over the winter. Until this point is reached, only surplus birds are being killed. The likelihood of killing more than the surplus of pheasants greatly increases as habitat areas are reduced. The birds become more vulnerable to both predators and hunters if they are forced to crowd into a few small wintering areas. Similarly, nest losses due to predation are much greater if pheasants are forced to utilize strip cover such as fencerows and roadside ouches rather than block cover in wetland areas and alfalfa fields. Anyone who has hunted pheasants with a dog knows that the birds are much easier to find along a narrow strip of cover than within a large block. The chance of nests along fencerows being discovered by these predators is further increased by the fact that many predators use fencerows as travel lanes to move from one area to another. Habitat improvement for pheasants rather than predator control appears more advisable in Alberta at this time to increase pheasant numbers To ignore habitat development while im- plementing an intensive control program is as shown by a recent ,Mudy in southern Minnesota. In this study 15 to 20 predators per square mile were remov- ed annually from the study area yet pheasant numbers continued to decline due to habitat losses and adverse weather In contrast, a study in Wisconsin showed that some predator control may be necessary if the full benefits
