Nonsensical Outrage Over USDA Killing 4 Million Animals

EuropeanStarlingIt appears as the typical media barrage of one outlet writing something and the whole world is copying and pasting what one has written without effort to study the facts. Instead, they would rather implement emotional insanity, while casting blame and outrage over something none know anything about. But then, isn’t that the way of things today? In addition, shouldn’t it raise an ounce of suspicion when media outlet after media outlet, including crap posted by democrats in the House Committee on Natural Resources, don’t bother to provide readers with a link to the U.S. Department of Agriculture report showing the data? This way, at least those wanting to discover the truth for themselves can.

I don’t know who the first media outlet was to announce that the U.S. Department of Agriculture, through their Wildlife Services, killed 4,378,456 wild animals. Wildlife Services’ job is to deal with threatening, troublesome, nuisance and dangerous wild animals. Four million animals seems a lot, especially when a person is lazy and willing, by choice, to remain ignorant to facts.

There are many aspects to the events surrounding a year long killing of wild animals, the likes of which the overwhelming majority of us don’t understand. We were not there for each incident and so we don’t know the reasons for killing of wildlife. However, even for a person to take a brief moment out of their useless lives of texting, a lot of simple questions can be answered.

An examination of the report compiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) tells us exactly what species was killed, whether that killing was done intentionally or unintentionally, how many states the killing of that species took place, whether the animals were released to another location and how many animals were dispersed from the location in question.

Of the 4,378,456 animals killed, 2,336,840 were listed as “invasive species.” We should be grateful for the removal of invasive species. 31,660 animals were captured and released, including 1,945 invasive species and I don’t know why. 23,759,934 animals were dispersed and not killed. That statistic alone should put everything else into perspective.

But let’s look even closer at those 4.3 million animals some claim feds are murdering. The European starling accounts for 2,058,148 animals, spread out over 46 states, while nearly 5 million were dispersed. Just how many starlings do the animal pervert worshipers need to protect?

His a glance at the larger number of kills and the species involved, in no particular order:

1. Beavers – 24,390
2. Red-winged Blackbirds – 365,141
3. Double-crested Cormorants – 18,656
4. Brown-headed Cowbird – 1,102,097
5. Coyotes – 75,326
6. American Crows – 8,228
7. Mourning Doves – 17,493
8. Canada Geese – 23,155
9. Common Grackle – 173,565
10. Assorted Species of Gulls – 22,000 plus
11. Chestnut and Nutmeg Mannikins – 51,726
12. All Mynas – 10,486
13. Pigeons – 89,054
14. Northern Pikeminnows – 50,812
15. Assorted Prairie Dogs – 58,586
16. Racoons – 11,698
17. Common Raven – 9,126
18. Skunks – 6,324
19. Brown Tree Snake – 18,407
20. Feral Hogs – 31,105
21. Black and Turkey Vultures – 6,498

The overwhelming number of animals killed were birds. There were few game animals with whitetail deer leading the list.In one report I was reading, it said that critics of the animal killing wanted an explanation as to why the number of wild animals killed by Wildlife Services fluctuated up and down. Perhaps simply by someone asking that question is tell-tailing that they haven’t a clue about the fluctuations of wildlife and the circumstances that surround events that causes these animals to become a problem in the first place. In addition, so long as animal perverts want to continue to demand the protection of every single species of animal, Wildlife Services will be killing more than 4 million animals each year.
