"I've got 117 pounds of dead birds - I weighed them"

This woman has bigger problems than dead birds.

Agreed BigG, this is just disturbing.

Is I just me or do all farmers think that every problem can be solved by killing harmless woodland creatures?

"Ooo aarr! All my cows have TB! Is that because I pack them all in like sardines with those really cheep catle I brought the other week or is it badgers? It must be badgers because it's never my fault! I'll buy some poison and some shotgun cartages later after I fark my sister!"

Can't blame Harvey Culli for nuking those birds. I've seen these bird flocks make fallow ground out of a newly planted field. Question is, whould he have been treated differnent if he used the correct poision.

117 lbs of dead birds?!?...this means only one thing in rural Illinois....Good Eatin!

Al - if you read any reputable bird book, you'll find that starlings were introduced from Europe. They breed like rats, overtake native popluations, and generally make huge nuisances of themselves. I'm all for getting rid of any introduced species, including wild horses and mules, that doesn't belong in an ecosystem. Let the flaming begin! And before someone makes the comment that whites and others were only introduced to North America recently, that doesn't count. Native Americans were introduced at some point too, and we're all the same species.

117 pounds? How many starlings is that? Don't they only weigh, like, 8 oz. or something? That's make it 234 birds. That's a lot of birds...

Random Rampage:
Agreed, starlings are a non-native species and should be eliminated.
I have heard however, that if you get a baby and raise it, they make great pets.
