The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is engaged in what can only be called an avian holocaust through its Bye Bye Blackbird program that has poisoned tens of millions of birds over the last decade. The USDA even reports the number of birds it has poisoned to death in a PDF document posted on the USDA website. Learn more: www.naturalnews.com...


I'm Speechless here..If this is true....source
PDF


The original source URL of this file was: www.aphis.usda.gov... This document shows that, just in 2009, the following bird populations were poisoned and killed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, using taxpayer dollars: (Listed as "Intentional" and "Killed / Euthanized") Brown-headed cowbirds: 1,046,109 European Starlings: 1,259,714 Red-winged blackbirds: 965,889 Canadian geese: 24,519 Grackles: 93,210 Pigeons: 96,297 ...plus tens of thousands of crows, doves, ducks, falcons, finches, gulls, hawks, herons, owls, ravens, sparrows, swallows, swans, turkeys, vultures and woodpeckers, among other animals. The chart even shows that the USDA "unintentionally" euthanized one Bald Eagle. Also murdered in 2009 by the USDA are victims of other species: 27,000 beavers, 1700 bobcats, 81,000 coyotes, 2,000 gray foxes, 336 mountain lions, 1900 woodchucks, 130 porcupines, 12,000 raccoons, 20,000 squirrels, 30,000 wild pigs, 478 wolves. Learn more: www.naturalnews.com...
.

seriously people..what is wrong with our government...




But if you work for the USDA, you can murder animals by the tens of millions and virtually no network news outlet even covers the story. It's not enough, apparently, that humans have already caused widespread destruction of animal habitat across North America; now our own government is actively murdering literally millions of animals every year Learn more: www.naturalnews.com...

You do understand that much of the primary focus of our human existance is the creation of death?
These are gross figures, and are probably underscored where politically correct and perhaps overscored when claiming some form of success?
(just my opinion of human frailty)
Have you seen what the cowbirds do to poor unsuspecting other birds?
Amazingly they have figured out if they slip and egg into some unsuspecting nesting birds stash,That bird will work itself near to death to feed and acre for the hatchling, which will be si large as to be able to outeat all his siblings and starve them to death while the mother and dad simply slave to extinction raiseing this stranger....
(I have witnessed this many times,)
Starlings also have no business being here, and they have been probably, along with scotch broom, the leading harbinger of what is bad about putting living reatures into foriegn habitats....
yet nobody really got it.
Anyways, i must say we created many of the problems and the efforts to eradicate the strain on native species,
though maybe misguided or poor,arent totally deplorable.
In the end, the figures arent a surprise.
They are however, a very sad commentary on how we manage this worlds fellow species.

What´s wrong ? I think it´s simple , they are no humans
we are governed by clones ,I really believe that and if we don´t act very soon ,perhaps we will never be able to .

yea..i get it..what i don't get is this..




I would be more than happy to contribute money to actually building schools and roads. But to see my hard-earned dollars used by the USDA to murder innocent animals is extremely offensive,


If Project "bye bye BlackBird "is true...

Why would they do it on New Years Eve of all times...

makes you wonder about their morals or lack of......

I have looked at that PDF. And while I don't doubt the validity of it. It seems very convenient in light of what has been happening as of late. And all those numbers for that year don't even compare to what we've seen since 1/1.

The 2009 report finishes at 4.1 million euthanized, only 22,685 were blackbirds, and 27.6 million dispersed. By dispersed, do they mean spread out? Or do they have a different definition for it?

I'm sorry but do we have the US government admitting that they are poisoning birds on purpose? Why on earth if they are doing this would they come clean? Makes no sense to me unless it's a distraction

Yes! Truly amazing for the Dept of Agriculture to admit they're purposefully killing birds... somehow I'm more convinced this has to do with DARPA's work under the DoD.
Let us see if some news article spin doesn't pop up on this being a remedy for the Avian Flu

Well I for one am glad to have the geese gone. Once they quit migrating they had to go. I know golf course owners that killes thousands. GGood riddance

Hmm, this almost seems like a cover up for HAARP or DARPA. I just don't see the government going clean about this. Though with them revoking the program's webpage that makes this even more bizarre

Grackles and pigeons are just flying rats. They do more damage than most species of birds. Sometimes species need to be controlled. Cockroaches come to mind! Those danged Geese have cost towns millions for damage to spots fields and parks! I agree, this cold weather has helped with that problem!

Actually yes. I saved the 2009 PDF too. Just in case. A distraction? Maybe.

HEY!!!

I like pigeons, they are delightfully goofy.

But on topic, perhaps like was stated somewhat above, maybe the larger numbers like the grackles and cowbirds that were killed were the intended targets whereas the rest of the birds, mostly the non-pest native species were collateral damage?

It's called nature and the food chain.

Who the f@&@ are we to say starlings or any other animal shouldn't be in any other country it's like saying the only people that should be in America are the native Indians so if you really believe starlings shouldn't be there many you should leave just a thought

Is that all people care about MONEY!
You say they do alot of damage and need controlling! what about humans do we need controlling we are killing the planet should we start killing people to control it?

So, Im not an avian expert or anything but my whole family has been keeping track of these animal stories (mostly ive been telling them) and mid-conversation my mother, trying to be a smart-ass, points out a flock of birds and notes the direction theyre going. she whips out her iphone and opens the compass app - sure enough - southeast.. She assumed she had proved me wrong. But alas, not but two hours later, either the same group or two separate groups of geese fly back and forth from south to north. The same exact thing happened again tonight. So its one thing if all the birds were flying south, but im doubting there were 6 separate groups of geese that were all going in separate directions. It was just very strange to see and Im glad the family was able to witness. Ive become a big supporter of the "magnetic mayhem" reporter's theory so it would make sense if this were the case. If anyone has any similar experiences, opinions or avian-expertise....do feel free to give me your two cents.

Tell me,are you the one who pays taxes or is it your parents? If it's you and you see a third of your towns budget go for rebuilding something you already paid for on school grounds due to over population of birds..just what would you recommend? Maybe you should go and stand around waiting for them to land and chase them away all day long? Or maybe you expect some over paid civil servant overtime to chase them away to prevent the damage in one place only to have them land elsewhere and do the damage there?
There's a time to do something and control of population is one and, after all,we humans are at the top of the food chain even if you are insulted by that idea!
