Everybody Please. Your Help Is Needed!
California Kings County Prison (also known as Corcoran) will commence to poisoning pigeons with and unknown toxin tomorrow morning, May 29, 2001.
They evidently don't know or don't care that there are humane pigeon deterrents available to them. This is nesting season, for heaven's sake!
What can you do? You can call them. There is precious little time, as the paper saw fit to report this three days before the extermination of the pigeons begins. With the holiday weekend, there is only one recourse we can take--deluge them with phone calls!
I spoke with Dave Roth of the Urban Wildlife Society last night. Dave's solutions for one Nevada prison can be seen at:
Please note the 9th item listed...
There ARE humane alternatives, and they're safer and cheaper in the long run!
We are seeing the work of a chemical sales rep. and a buyer whose budget is likely based on the previous year's spending...
Help stop this!
Won't you call and let them know that this is unacceptable? Time is so short. Don't worry about getting an answering machine--flood their messaging system! Be polite. An irate or crank call will do more harm than good. Identify yourself and let them know what that you believe that this is wrong!
Here are the two numbers to call:
Joseph Wenzel: 559-992-8800 ext. 7706
Sylvia Gonzalez: 559-992-8800 ext. 6104
Call today, tonight, or tomorrow morning, it doesn't matter, just make these calls ASAP!
Call in favors from friends and make these calls! If we turn this around, we can add Corcoran to a list facilities deterring pigeons humanely. The next place may be your home town!
No, we may not stop this one instance, but we've learned that this is an annual event!
And we have people working on it locally. If we raise awareness now, we can break the cycle before next year. I repeat, this is nesting season...
Your comments are welcome but your phone calls to Corcoran can make a difference.
Why not do it right now?
