Urge Kansas Cardiology Office to Halt Alleged Bird Poisoning
Concerned Wichita-area residents have reported to PETA that Heartland Cardiology is using avicides (bird poison) to kill unwanted birds on its property! Avicides are often falsely touted as harmless “flock dispersing agents,” when, in fact, they are extraordinarily cruel poisons, attacking and impairing nervous systems and causing disorientation, erratic flight, tremors, and convulsions before an agonizing death. And lethal measures, in addition to upsetting Heartland Cardiology patients and area residents who find birds in their death throes, actually backfire because when birds are killed, the resultant spike in the food supply causes survivors and newcomers to breed at accelerated rates. PETA has asked Heartland Cardiology to scrap poisoning initiatives in favor of humane bird-control methods that keep birds away permanently, but to no apparent avail. Your voice is needed!
Please contact Heartland Cardiology and urge the office to stick with tried and true bird-control methods that everyone can live with, including the animals. And please, forward this alert widely!

Dear Administrator Robinson,
It has come to my attention that Heartland Cardiology is using avicides (bird poison) to kill unwanted birds on its property. Please allow me to state my objection. First, avicides are often falsely touted as harmless “flock dispersing agents”, when, in fact, they are extraordinarily cruel poisons, attacking and impairing nervous systems and causing disorientation, erratic flight, tremors, and convulsions before an agonizing death.
Second, this poison can also affect other non-target wild and non-wild animals, including those who maintain an endangered definition, and cats and dogs.
Third, killing the birds artificially increases food supplies to the remaining birds, the consequence of which is increased reproduction and an ensuing greater bird population. In fact, studies have demonstrated that the continual cycle of seasonal culls is responsible for a rebound, or larger populations, in subsequent years.
As such, I respectfully request that you work with particular groups and citizens to develop alternative, humane solutions to killing these animals. These creatures are sentient and deserve our compassion and respect, not our brutality and violence.
I thank you for your attention to this urgent appeal.
avicides equals homicides.
there are humane, heartfelt
have you tried?
there is no reason that
beautiful birds and others
have to die!!!!
