 In FY 2010, Wildlife Services admitted it killed 5 million animals (but its numbers are suspect. In 2010, it belatedly claimed to have poisoned 4 million starlings, black birds, and others in 2009), including 112,781 mammalian carnivores such as coyotes, wolves, bobcats, cougars, badgers and bears....     http://www.predatordefense.org/exposed/

-▶  BETWEEN 2004 AND 2011 U.S. WILDLIFE SERVICE KILLED OVER 26 MILLION ANIMALS. Every year literally hundreds of thousands of our nation's most majestic animals - including wolves, coyotes, grizzly bears and mountain lions- are poisoned, trapped and gunned down by the US government.  Few taxpayers realize that we help fund an agency called "Wildlife Services', a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that wages a dirty war on America's wildlife. Between 2004 and 2011, Wildlife Services killed over 26 million animals purportedly to “protect” agribusiness or “bolster” hunting opportunities – a contention based on unsupported myths. The agency spends over $100 million each year on wildlife-killing actions... http://www.wildearthguardians.org/site/PageServer?pagename=priorities_wildlife_war_wildlife

Norma R. Burnson's curator insight, March 18, 2:47 AM

Sustainable Food for the Globe.  Bees and Seeds.  A lie is a lie, just as a fact is a fact. Some people are so greedy, they'll pay off NASA to say Gravity is not real, because my money says so!   ..."Enter the corporate spin doctors. As my new report with Friends of the Earth details, three of the leading pesticide corporations — Bayer, Syngenta, and Monsanto — are engaged in a massive public relations disinformation campaign to distract the public and policymakers from thinking that pesticides might have something to do with bee death and destruction." $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
