That article disgusts me. Will we never learn to leave things alone. i just laugh (sadly) when the USDA says these poisons are safe--it's an oxymoron.
Oh no, this really scares me. I wonder what other programs are going on, what other animals, plants whatever are being poisoned.I am high upset. Thanks for bringing this to light!
This is so sad. What a program....
Yeah, I'm sure they had nothing to do with all the other deaths...nothing at all. Sad...
Not very bright of them to keep putting poison everywhere. Well, at least they sort of took some responsibility
Terrible! Thanks for being a watchdog.
This article is sad and repulsive but I appreciate your expose. My students have been asking me what's caused the deaths and I just told them what I had read in the papers. Now I can finally tell them the truth. I enjoy seeing red winged blackbirds and grackles in my garden year round. I've never considered them a pest!
About 25 years ago the city where I live decided there were too many pigeons and proceeded to put out poison for them. The birds would be flying when the poison hit them and then they'd be like drunk birds, flying into fences, trees, houses, etc. One flew into our chain link fence and was caught. It was so sad!
