State of Idaho plans to poison up to 4,000 Common Ravens.
Justification: Ravens prey on the eggs of the imperiled Greater Sage-Grouse. Yet of 19 reasons for the grouse’s declining numbers, predation by other wildlife comes in at #12. Providing protected areas and requiring sustainable land management are the most important ways to conserve the grouse, not killing avian predators.

It’s really close, please sign guys!
killing one species to ‘protect’ another is a horrible approach to anything. Have people not learned by now? And how many other animals would this inevitably poison? Ones that would also not only ingest the poison, but the poisoned bird carcasses.
What is wrong with people.
Crows and Ravens hold a sacred position in the Mythos of North America, they should be honored and revered not murdered.

Look a long nap this afternoon as means of recovery from intense new year’s eve revelries. Dreamed I was visiting a Scandinavian country during a high solar festival. Lots of celebrations involving shrieking, shouting children running about and causing general chaos. Pistachio meringues were munched on as people lay on blankets under the moon and watched the stars.
I found this at the LGBTQA resource at my school and I think it’s so cool!
