Airport Allowed to Destroy Bald Eagles Nests


Officials at Sanford Airport in Orlando, Florida have been given permission to destroy the nests of three American bald eagle couples after they complained that the birds were interferring with the airplanes.

The nests in question currently house eagle chicks, as well as the pairs, and the permission to get rid of them has outraged environmentalists. Airport workers say they have tried to scare the birds away with fireworks and sirens and nothing worked.

According to state researchers, some 20 nests were found near the airport, and another 10 were found when the area was expanded to within five miles.

"....The city government received permission to get rid of the nests...."

Permission from who?

Did the city government give the city government permission?

Damn reporters anymore, too damn lazy to get pertinant info.

And ...... what the hell happened to that federal protection act of Bald Eagles?
Does it only count in the friggen forests?

they'r getting rid of a few nests near airports not shooting down all the bald eagles in the area. The eagles will just go elsewhere and hopefully so since those airplanes have hundreds of souls onboard. Not only that eagles aren't endangered anymore thanks for all the protection they've received.

little too much out of nothing there

  listen in on bird-baiting strategy...  
Now that we've got the court order , we oughta decide just how we're gonna do away with these dangerous national symbol varmints.

What if we just up and shoot 'em , sir?

We can't shoot 'em Cletis ; they're daggum f*cking eagles. We'll have worse press than Anna Nicole!

Ya wanna poison 'em?

And do you wanna watch them buzzards dropping like flies on HD TV? I swear Cletis ; the best part of you ran down your daddy's leg. I'm serious now! Whaterwe gonna do to deep six the irdbays?

Well , we could set fire when the mother's out of the nest.

Yeah. Flamin' babies leaping to their deaths would be better TV , wouldn't it knucklehead?

Well , I dunno whatever we're supposed to do. When I kill eagles , they're out in the woods sitting in a tree. I don't know how to kill 'em when they're on TV! An' I ain't no knucklehead , sir!

Maybe you're right. Maybe I'll just shove this upstairs...

Hello , Mr President. We have a little problem with some eagles at Sanford Airport down here in Florida. And we're wonderin' whether we should burn 'em out or shoot 'em. We need a decision on that as soon as possible sir...

  Bald Eagles, yummy!

  Not To Mention  
[1] What if these Eagles decide to rebuild? Will the city then ok destruction of the birds?

[2] It the birds don't rebuild, where will they go? Not saying they are indicative of airport homes, just curious.

[3] I read nothing about alternative methods, such as hundreds of other airports have SUCCESFULLY invoked to solve problems of many types of fowl.

  <3 Wikipedia  
"The species was on the brink of extinction in the US late in the 20th century, but now has a stable population and is in the process of being removed from the U.S. federal government's list of endangered species."
