Nuisance Animals Killed in U.S.Program

The following is the forwarding message. I feel horrible seeing this.

As many of you may already know, the USDA has a viscious animal-hating division, "wildlife services" and, fortunately, the New York Times recently ran a quick blurb on how this department, Orwellian-named "Wildlife Services" is killing MILLIONS of animals. I'm attaching the article, but -- dave (and friends) - is there any way you can post the contact information where people who see your web page can call the USDA and protest? (Ps. included in the recent Wildlife Survey was a recommendation to kill a minimum of 9,000 NYC pigeons)

Here is the article that was run in yesterday's New York Times:

September 11, 2005 'Nuisance' Animals Killed in U.S. Program
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON, Sept. 10

(AP) - The government killed more than 2.7 million "nuisance" animals last year, including starlings, black bears, coyotes and wolves, mainly because they threatened livestock or crops.

The number of deaths, one million more than in 2003, drew criticism.

"Wildlife Services killed more than five animals per minute in 2004," said Wendy Keefover-Ring, a spokeswoman for Sinapu, a Colorado advocacy group for predators.

The program is the responsibility of Wildlife Services, an Agriculture Department program. "Lethal means is something that we do as a final resort," said a Wildlife Services spokesman, Dan Perry.

Mr. Perry said the department helped landowners and others take measures to keep creatures out.
