    If the crows are the culprits, the authorities should send a team of expert crow hunters to shoot those crows down. In Singapore, the government sent a team of crow hunters to shoot and kill a lot of crows as there were too many crows flying about and the crows posed a annoyance/threat to the general public.
    From the gorund, the team of sharpshooters used rifles and shot down a lot of crows flying in the air.

    That is so sad!
    What is the world coming to when it just shoots whatever is buggin' it?

    Everything in this world has a purpose, it is up to us to find out that purpose and use it to the Earth's advantage. Most birds keep the insect population under control, bats used to help with this, until Man got scared of them. Insects have a use, they also spread diseases, so yeah! Shoot the birds! :rolleyes:

    We don't know something about a species or even people, or don't want to bother to learn - SO WE SHOOT THEM!?!?!?

    FREAKING SCARY SCI-FI STUFF!! (Except it isn't fiction! My head is going to fall off from shaking it!)

    Most places just put up OWL stautes, the natural enemy of crows and such! Talk about overkill, talk about mental attitude adjustments by the gov!

    I'll quit now! :(

    This is one piece from the story...............

    In Australia, meanwhile, we're certain that toadologists are awaiting with eager anticipation the identification of the cause of the exploding German toad. Oz currently hosts 100 million unwelcome cane toads and there's nothing the Aussies would like more than to see a landscape littered with the corpses of eviscerated, exploded toads.

    BBuck would know these fellows a little better than me, but we would love some explosions our way.

    We are encouraged to run as many over as possible........
