BACKGROUND

The Springs of Country Woods apartment complex is using poison to kill unwanted birds on its property! Birds have reportedly been seen “falling from the sky” and dying on the apartment complex’s grounds. Bird poisons are extremely cruel, attacking and impairing nervous systems and causing disorientation, erratic flight, tremors, and convulsions before an agonizing death.

Please contact the management of The Springs of Country Woods apartment complex. Urge them to remove any poison that has been set out on their property, and ask them to employ humane deterrent methods, which are effective at keeping birds away permanently!

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear Management,

It has come to my attention that Springs of Country Woods apartment complex is using poison to kill unwanted birds on its property. Birds have reportedly been seen “falling from the sky” and dying on the apartment complex’s grounds.

Please allow me this opportunity to elaborate my protest. First, bird poisons are extremely cruel, 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.

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 matter.


we are birds,
born to fly,
why do you sentence
us to this terrible
way to die.
if you do not
want us,
find a kinder way.
you would not be
happy if this happened
to you one day.
