    Good old New Zealand 'DOC' with its Scorched Earth Policies. They made the Americans sit up and take notice. It is a big crime in America to kill a bald eagle.

    I can remember well how some Americans escaped the draft to Vietnam. You only had to tell a Judge that you had conspired to kill a bald eagle and none of the Service would accept you.

    Amazing how they managed to kill twice the known population of Bald Eagles on the Island.

    Yes they killed the Birds ,but the real question is did they kill all of the Rats.
    Cause if they did how are they going to justify another poison drop if there are no rats to kill and they have lost their jobs

    First Yacht sails past and a new crop of rats are born. When poison is used in this way in a race for last creature standing, my money is always on the rat.

    Both the glaucous winged gull and the bald eagle are predatory birds...what about our brush tongued nectar eating birds...?

    But native birds for all that. The glaucous winged gull is a rare and prized species and the bald eagle, well they are right up there at the top of the don't kill chain

    Yep but so are our own Morepork, Falcon, Weka, Pukeko, Harrier, kea and probably a few I have missed.

    Some of our nectar eaters are insectivorous as well so this opens up another avenue for poisoning.

    I make you wonder about these people doesn't it. A simple google.. 'Diaphacinone and Bats' at the time of this poisoning (as it still does)showed that bats were targeted with this poison in South America.
