Stop NY Governor Cuomo, The DEC and Obama's USDA From Massacring 165,000 Geese

Elizabeth Colbert said on the radio in February in effect "We humans are the disastrous asteroid destroying the earth." Human chauvinists think no other life form matters. Governor Cuomo, Joe Martens' Department of Environmental Conservation (what a misnomer) and secretly Obama's USDA run by Tom Vilsack whose background is facilitating the slaughter of millions of Iowa pigs are behind plans for the genocide of 170,000 Canadian geese as well as geese called 'mute swans' who are not aggressive with human beings as they silently swoop down.

While the New York Times coverage has been good, its use of the words 'trim' and 'culling' to describe the planned murder of 165,000 geese is a bloody euphemism.

Thumbs down to the Audubon Society, an organization which has always exempted chickens and turkeys from its concern, for stating that there are 5 times too many geese. Is 7 billion human beings too many?

The USDA has been killing tens of millions of birds for many decades, in response to livestock farmers' demands.

These birds can be part of a catch and release program, not a trap and slaughter one.

Geese murder has been ongoing in New York, at airports, in parks, but never before have the avicidal maniacs planned the deaths of so many.
