The spotted owl’s need for old-growth forest has been at the center of long-standing battles about logging in the Northwest.
Now there’s a new development in the controversy.
The Obama administration has decided not to defend the Bush administration's decision to cut protections for the owl.
Lawyers for the Department of Interior filed a motion in a lawsuit over the owl this week.
Lawyers said they based the decision on a report of potential political interference in owl protections by a former deputy assistant Interior secretary.
It remains to be seen exactly what policy the Obama administration will support, but move represents a major change in policy.

University of Chicago professor W. J. T. Mitchell’s work touches on a wide range of topics, from renaissance painting to Spike Lee, from cloning to Abu Ghraib. A leading image theorist and editor of the interdisciplinary journal Critical Inquiry, Mitchell is also the author of several books, including Picture Theory, The Last Dinosaur Book, and, most recently, What do Pictures Want?
