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...
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.

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...
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,

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
