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.
We the undersigned have had enough of poisonous farm practices, and this mass murdering of birds is the last straw.
We demand that this mass killing end immediately and that the USDA support, instead, the age-old wisdom and practice of sustainable and natural farming, in which birds play a vital role.
In the meantime, we demand a less toxic, less murderous solution to whatever problem farmers may be having with feedlots.
We know very well that the current poisonous and murderous practices supported by the USDA are far more of a threat to human health than are a flock of birds.
We appreciate your attention to this very serious concern.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
