Duncan's Birds Die for NOTHING!
From the Las Vegas Sun, NV
Published February 05, 2003

Necropsies recently conducted on 60 birds from that area -- owned by Jill Duncan, the most vocal critic of the eradication process -- found no signs of disease.

Duncan contended that all of the birds should have been tested first in order to spare healthy ones, but authorities obtained a court order to euthanize her birds Saturday.

Thain said the 215 federal and state agents who are conducting the eradication process have no choice but to destroy all birds -- healthy or otherwise -- in the infected area.

"We had to look at the one-kilometer area around the (original infected) site to address all potential exposure," Thain said. "In that process, normal, healthy birds are destroyed to ensure that the disease does not get out of the area, so we can save the larger population of healthy birds."

NOTE: A depopulated neighbor of Duncan's had an indoor parrot which was not killed. Using the presumption made by Thain, this makes no sense whatsoever. This is hypocracy and spin-doctoring at its worst.

To have denied Duncan any testing before slaughtering her birds, some of which she had owned and loved for over 20 years, is absolutely unconscionable.

If we find a person with Small Pox, do we just kill all those around them in a one kilometer area, whether they are sick or not so that we can save the larger population of healthy people?

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." - Mohandas Ghandhi (1869-1948)

The combined forces of the USDA and the State of Nevada show this nation to be sadly lacking in both of these attributes.

Woman's Pet Birds Eradicated
From the Las Vegas Review-Journal, NV
Published February 03, 2003

Trying to thwart a potential poultry crisis, USDA workers arrived at Duncan's home on Saturday afternoon with a court order and fatally gassed 64 of her domesticated chickens, ducks and geese, she said.

Duncan said none of her animals appeared to be sick. She said the agency declined to test the animals for the disease because it would have been too costly. She was the only one of 82 owners to challenge USDA officials to get a court order for their mission.

On Saturday, she sat by and watched her pets die.
