The US Wildlife Service was subjected to severe criticism after revealing the number of wild animals it killed during 2019, as the US Department of Agriculture program killed more than 1.2 million local species, including wolves, coyotes, cougars and birds, all of which were funded by taxpayer money. According to the British “Daily Mail” website, the multi-million federal program implemented this in the first place to make way for the agricultural industry in states such as Texas, Colorado and New Mexico.
Just days after the report was released, a lawsuit was filed against the organization by an environmental group over its long-standing New Mexico wildlife killing program, which is said to be negatively affecting the ecosystem.
South Rocky VI Wildlife Advocate Chris Smith said WildEarth Guardians : “The wildlife services are famous for their killing campaigns across the country. Carrying out such a horrific attack on local wildlife in the midst of a mass extinction event and climate crisis, without any real knowledge of the impact, is completely outrageous.”
According to the Wildlife Service report, 301 gray wolves were deliberately killed; 61,882 adult wolves, plus an unknown number of baby coyotes in 251 destroyed dens; 364.734 red-winged blackbird; 393 black bear 300 mountain lions; 777 Bobcats; Killed 124 river foxes in addition to 489 “inadvertently”; 2,447 foxes, plus an unknown number of juvenile red foxes in 94 dens; And 24,543 beavers.
More than 14,000 prairie dogs have been completely eliminated, but an unknown number of over 35,000.
The wildlife killing program inadvertently killed more than 2,624 animals in 2019, including bears, cats, mountain lions, wolves, foxes, musk, otters, porcupines, raccoons, and turtles. Killing non-target birds included ducks, eagles and swallows. The heron and turkey.
Dozens of pets, including both pets and livestock, have been killed or captured, and this data reveals the random nature of traps, poisons and other methods used by federal agents.
“Year after year, wildlife services continue to kill wildlife unnecessarily, although effective tools exist to prevent most conflicts,” said Colette Adkins, director of carnivore conservation at the Center for Biological Diversity.
