The Sac Bee on USDA Wildlife Services

I knew about some of the lethal practices used by Wildlife Services, but I had no idea about the extent of usage and implementation. This three-part series from the Sacramento Bee is a really tough read (as in painful), but I think it’s information worth knowing: The Killing Agency (Part 1) and Part Two by Tom Knudsen. (Thanks to Dawn Watch for the link.)

    Both of these articles further cement the thoughts I have had about the worthlessness of this type of “predator control”.

    It makes me ill.

    I first read part 1 through Facebook a few days ago. Thanks for providing the links Ingrid – the more people who see this the better. I RAGE at stuff like this – it’s so damned senseless, inhumane and counterintuitive.

    Mia and Ron, I feel the same way … and I try to achieve balance (“try” being the operative term) between my need to be informed and my need to have some peace of mind. I know that on any given day, a million and one things are happening that I feel helpless to change. But, I hope that all of us on some level, through photos and blogs and personal/professional endeavors, help counter this entrenched paradigm.
