Wildlife Services Killed 1.3 Million Native Animals in 2017
The arm of the U.S. Department of Agriculture known as Wildlife Services killed more than 1.3 million native animals last year, the agency has revealed.
These notoriously underreported numbers include more than 600,000 red-winged blackbirds, 69,041 adult coyotes, 23,646 beavers, 3,827 foxes, 1,001 bobcats, 675 river otters, 552 black bears, 357 gray wolves and 319 mountain lions.
The multimillion-dollar federal wildlife-killing program targets wolves, coyotes, cougars, birds and other wild animals for destruction — primarily at the whim of the agriculture industry.
