USDA has just admitted to murdering some of the masses of birds found lying dead in several US locations. But official documents show USDA killed many more.
According to KITV News, South Dakota, USDA's Carol Bannerman told police the birds found dead there had been intentionally poisoned with DRC-1339 (Starlicide).
USDA's reason: Complaints from Nebraska farmers that birds were defecating on feedlots.
But Subhash Sharma, an Indian farmer who changed from chemical to organic farming, told Third World Resurgence that he no longer needs insecticides or chemical fertilizers with nature taking care of the soil. "Each bird eats at least 50 destructive insects and contributes its excreta to the soil as manure," he said.
Tell the USDA to support healthy farming and livestock rather than poisoning hundreds of thousands of native blackbirds.
