First of all, I'd like to consider myself an avid animal-lover. No kind of genocide is acceptable in my eyes. We're creatures of this Earth just like
any other & we categorically do not have the right to exterminate any species of animal just because they pose a threat to our already huge numbers.
That said, the source is questionable! Tom Retterbush; who is this guy? If anything he seems to use any ole conspiracy theory without any perceivable
discernment as to their credibility. If someone can post me legit sources pertaining to this story then I'd rest easy. But I cannot penetrate any
further into this beyond the OP's link. Mass slaughter & unspeakable poisonings are unforgivable anyway so I'm already halfway there, but the de-facto
evidence pertaining to the horrendous depths of unnecessary killings remains elusive, at least to me. Can anyone further this claim with something
beyond Tom? I'm aware of the wild disinfo. being relentlessly disseminated of late & this just adds to the armfuls of cack that legitimate researchers
have to sift through IMHO. Wanna rage indignant with the rest of you but need credible sources!
And what are we to make of this?:
''After a long, hard walk on the wild side, I've become an honorable, honest and successful citizen, entrepreneur, activist and blogger. Though my
name is Thomas Retterbush, I go by Tom Retterbush, so please call me Tom. I have dedicated my life to providing hope to those who hit rock bottom the
way I did, founding and operating the Addicts NOT Anonymous community. If I can build something as huge as my "online empire" anything is possible by
anybody! Most people are too proud to list their shortcomings, faults and weaknesses for the whole world to see, but I am not most people. Most people
would be much to ashamed and humiliated to fess-up to all the horrible, stupid, selfish things they have done, but I don't care what anybody thinks of
me. Love me or hate me; I don't give a flying #! All that matters is what I think about myself. We all have our skeletons. I am no different than
anybody else. And yet, mostly to spare you the reader a rather long and scandalous story, I am writing this more conservative short version of my
story. If you want to read the whole horrible story including the whole unflattering truth, you may do so at; myspace.com...
born in 1961 on an American Air Force Base in Germany. My father was United States Air Force, my mother German, so I spent much of my life in the
small village near the Dutch border. In the late 1980s I met and married a German woman, soon thereafter becoming the father of my beautiful daughter,
Sonja. Life got extremely complicated during this phase of my life, so both wanting and needing a change, I decided to move my family to Cincinnati,
Ohio, during the summer of 1990. However, it was not long before our marriage turned sour, and though my wife and I stayed friends, we were soon
living our own separate lives. Living alone in Cincinnati, I had a brief period when I was driving a cab. It was unfortunate that I lost my taxi
permit due to an accident and lack of insurance, because although I wasn't getting rich and barely getting by, I really enjoyed driving my taxi. Soon
I was living from one day to the next, living in a small dump of a room in a shabby neighborhood. It was during this time period that, amongst other
problems, I was officially diagnosed as being bipolar. After hitting rock bottom, something from deep within myself completely turned my life around,
determined to quit partying, drinking, chasing women and screwing-up I have become an honorable, productive and successful citizen. I now have a
really nice, really big apartment. I have a humble, home-base, online business. I am founder and president of the San Antonio, Texas based nonprofit
Disabled Veterans Association. I am in the process of launching an online store, an addiction recovery Website, and hopefully will be able to launch
another site helping those afflicted with anxiety and depression. I work out, practice martial arts and archery, and play golf every chance I get, but
for right now I have too little time or money for these pursuits. I have promised myself that I will do more of each someday, knowing that that day
will never come. And so I live like anybody and everybody else in the world… one day at a time.''

Hmmm... I resonate with elements of his life; I also know where a jaded past can bias you against both the government and the people. So still leads
me to a blank. Either way, the USDA has zero right to be 'playing God' like they're doing; it's despicable. Who gives anyone such blind authority? One
unnecessary death is one too much. In fact, you go, Tom!
PS: I'm aware I've led us all full circle; it's how my mind operates. If it feels comfortable to you, just ignore all of the above.
