Not all the mysterious bird die-offs that have been witnessed around
the globe recently are due to unexplained causes. A recent mass
die-off event witnessed in Yankton, South Dakota was traced back to
the USDA which admitted to carrying out a mass poisoning of the
After hundreds of starlings were found dead in the Yankton Riverside
Park, concerned citizens began to investigate.
Before long, a USDA
official called the local police and admitted they had poisoned the
"They say that they had poisoned the birds about ten miles
south of Yankton and they were surprised they came to Yankton like
they did and died in our park," says Yankton Animal Control Officer
Lisa Brasel, as reported by KTIV.
The USDA then confirmed the story and explained it was all "part of
a large killing" in Nebraska. Some of the birds that ate the poison
apparently flew all the way to Yankton before succumbing to the

farmer was apparently complaining that the starlings were defecating
in his feed meal. The answer to this conundrum apparently isn't to

thousands of birds.
The USDA complied, apparently agreeing this was a brilliant idea. So

"We're doing it to address, in this case, agricultural damage as

That's just a lie, of course.
In what universe do starlings pose a
threat to human health and safety?
The USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) Wildlife Services website, by the way, is
The USDA even has a name for this mass poisoning program: Bye Bye
Blackbird. Through the use of poisons such as DRC-1339, the USDA has
killed more than four million birds over the last several years,

showing just how many they've murdered with poison.
Remember, these are mass bird killings that are funded with your tax
dollars. It all makes you wonder whether the government is, in fact,
responsible for many of the other mysterious animal deaths that have
reported across the country (and around the globe).
It also makes you wonder:
If the federal government thinks nothing
of murdering 4 million living, breathing birds, then what else might
they be capable of doing out of a total lack of respect for
