Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Another natural enemy of the pheasants in the southern part of the province is the skunk. Mr. Skunk particularly likes pheasant eggs. it's a real delicacy when he is able to sneak up on a sleeping adult bird. While this striped fugitive may have some Rood points in its its bad points overwhelm and it is constantly being pur- sued as ar undesirable in Alberta. Skunks attempting to move into this province from neighboring Saskatchewan have a high incidence of being rabid. they have acquired a taste for pheasant. Main problem at present is that the Saskatchewan skunks are migrating west across the border. This skunk migration has taken place for many years and is usually continuous until mid- according to Dale biologist and pest control specialist with the provincial department'of agriculture. In its fight with the Alberta government has es- tablished an 18-mile buffer zone from the Montana border on the south to'Cold Lake on the north. Rats and skunks are among the greatest carriers of the disease. it should be remembered and that Alberta is the last region in North America to be free of rats. Mr. Alsager asks anyone who sees a skunk in the buffer zone to kill or destroy it. In any report it to the nearest pest control or law enforcement agency. Provincial veterinarians would receive the carcasses of as many skunks as possible from the buffer zone so they can be checked for rabies. Only three skunks have been found with rabies since the control program was instituted in 1970. Biologists feel that even though the number of rabid skunks checked is there's still a real danger about the disease spreading into the interior of the province through skunks. The skunks move from their summer quarters to their' winter quarters along vacant badger fox brush piles and even open areas. There would appear to be more grain under granaries and teed in haystacks and under various other buildings in the phea- sant province. When the province set up its buffer zone for Controlling skunks along the Saskatchewan it also set up a radial depopulation program. Under this program attempts are madfe to destroy every skunk within a three-mile radius of a point where a rabid skunk has been found. The biologists feel the over-all control program has been successful. Main objective of the program is to destroy rabid animals much more quickly than it would be by disease. Rabies spread rapidly to other members of the wildlife and it's here'where a great danger exists. Before the disease burnt itself it would take a very heavy toll among other wildlife. It's understood that even local tourist promoters have marked Mr. Genus who is a close relative of the European as an undesirable.

Some officials also speak of in foreign relations. What .they mean is that the one of the most anti-Communist nations in Asia until a year is ready to expand its relations with China and the Soviet Union. Yet how does Manila expect to reconcile its recent over- tures to Peking with its close relations with Secretary for Foreign Af- fairs Carlos P. Romulo was asked if he had a formula in mind for this. He replied negotiations first would be held with the Nationalists on Taiwan and later with the Chinese Communists. Nixon and Premier Tanaka have showed the he referring to how the American and Japanese leaders had gone to Peking for talks. The Philippines are getting ready a plan of its the foreign secretary but does not know if it will be acceptable. have no magic he said. Mr. Romulo does have a personal invitation from his old friend. Chinese Prime Minister Chou to visit Peking officially or as as an individual whenever he chooses. The invitation was first extended at the. Bandung Conference in Indonesia in 1955. He does not yet know when he will use the in- vitation. Thus far formal Philippine contacts with China have been confined to one irade delega- tion visit to Peking. No formal relations have yet been established with the Soviet although calls have been paid in Moscow by travelling Filipino personages such as First Lady Imelda Marcos and former speaker of the house Cornelio Villareal. A Philippine trade delega- tion 'has also 'conferred with the Russians. And it was recently disclosed the Soviet Union will send a joint oil ex- ploration and trade mission to the Philippines soon to par- ticipate'in the multi-national search for petroleum that already involves eight foreign companies from the Australia and Great Britain. occasional rumors that Moscow has expressed an interest in obtaining naval facilities in the Mr. Romuio declared no such approach had been made. The diplomatic pace has moved a bit faster with the .Communist governments of Eastern and last year Manila es- tablished relations with Romania and Yugoslavia.
