Leave it to some desk jockey yahoo at the Department of Fish and Game (the most ludicrous department in the government) to come up with the statement in your article "Lion Sightings Force Irvine Park Closure" (Sept. 24): "They are trying to expand their habitat and they are coming into the human habitat." What? Who is expanding into whose habitat? I think Patrick Moore needs a serious reality check. LANA SCOTT Irvine

The boy needed 600 stitches for more than 50 puncture wounds.

In an effort to crack down on poachers, the state Department of Fish and Game has tried to enlist the help of concerned sportsmen. "One of the best ways we have to stop poaching," DFG spokesman Patrick Moore said, "is the help we get from other sportsmen and the concerned public who use our toll-free phone number to report poaching." Moore said that some hunters carry a card with the number, 1-800-952-5400, in their wallets while they're hunting. "It's a 24-hour phone line," he added.

The city has a new fishing hole. The state Department of Fish and Game this week released about 600 rainbow trout in a one-acre lake in Wilderness Park at Florence Avenue and Little Lake Road. The lake had been unsuitable for fish for about six years because of contamination and low oxygen levels, but the city decided to clean it up after draining the water so that police could search for a gun used in a crime. The gun was never found, said Richard C. Redmayne, director of public works.
