I am not an animal rightist at all. Moreover, I am a hunter. However, I think this is disgusting regardless of the reasoning on part of alll kind of industries.

The link is bad, but given the site's concentration on Chemtrails and FEMA (prisoner) camps I would not be easily convinced by it as a reference.

How about this?

Our industries do not need any wildlife at all. At least, wildlife is nothing but a nuisance. If you want to see animlas, look in the computer scree, cell phones or TV.

Does not seem to support your position.

The Interior Department’s Fish and Wildlife Service on Tuesday released a draft environmental assessment that would allow West Butte Wind Power LLC to kill as many as three protected golden eagles over five years if the company fulfills its conservation commitments.

<snip>

In this case "taking" would be the killing of eagles hit by the wind turbines' huge blades.


The allowance of up to three accidental bird deaths in five years seems rather benign especially when the secodary stipulation was to include conservation efforts to maintain the breeding population size.

The permit, if ultimately issued, stipulates that there must be no net loss to breeding populations of golden eagles from the wind farm project. That means for every protected bird permitted killed, developers must contribute to conservation efforts for breeding them.

“Our goal is to maintain stable or increasing populations of eagles protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act," said Chris McKay, assistant regional director for Migratory Birds and State Programs in the Fish and Wildlife Service's Pacific Region.

I found an extensive listing from 2009 which indicates the European Starling accounted for about half of the animals killed by the USDA in that year. Of course, there are estimated to be some 200 million of these birds in North America too.

The blog site says it is wind powered. I guess so!
"And if the USDA poisons birds because certain groups become too populous, what do you suppose is planned for when human population grows too large?"
Well........the max long term sustainable at a Euro standard of living (about 35% lower CPPPD) was 100 million in 1992 and now down to about half that. So.....it has been too large a population here since 1928 after my dad was born.
Why aren't 30 million illegals kicked out and fined along with their encourager felons fined??? Why are over a million immigrants per year allowed when there are not enough jobs for the real Americans here??? Corrupt bastards!!! :x [-( [-X :mrgreen:
