Send your information and pictures to your local news station. All stations have a local segment. They will put out the word, put t on their facebook. People will react. Will they catch these, maybe not. But, the political folks will see the people reactions. You might get your signs sooner.

Case in point, someone found a strangled kitten. Took pic's and sent it to the news. the news reported, put it on facebook. And it took off. The facebook reaction was so much, they guy turned himself in. His friends recognized the kitten. This is over a several months. Today, he got 2 years and 3 month in jail. One year community service at the local humane society when he gets out and some fine. You never know.

Thanks, Dennis.

Too bad you can't hang out in the bushes with the 400mm and video them doing their deeds.  Then publish on youtube and send to the local constabulary. <_<

Better yet the Tammy at 600mm and just blast them all over the web. The sad part is they would sue and drag Art through the cost of a trial.

This still angers me.

Some people are .....  (keeping it G).   Unfortunately, some fisherman see the cormorant and other species as competitors for the fish supply.  The cormorants do have a reputation of cleaning out the smaller fish that feed the game fish, but...  that is not reason to treat them like that. 

 

NYS DEC does a good job of monitoring such abuse.  On Oneida Lake you  will find the DEC, and three different Sheriff Departments patrolling. 

 

Keep up the gentle and metered pressure.  Too much noise makes you sound like a crack pot, but intelligent and thoughtful communications ( which I have no doubt that your letters are)will get favorable response.

(BTW maybe a photo series to the local press identifying the diverse population might help as well.  Down side is that will bring in more people to see it.)

 

Keep up the good work.

 

Cliff

Thanks, Cliff.  My letters are all soft key.  Raving to government doesn't get you anywhere.  I find this abuse pretty offensive and everything has to be done tactfully, no worries.

 

Cormorants are a bit of a pest in Toronto.  They have not only discovered us, they are here in numbers!!!  My wife and I were out on the Lake last week, just chilling and she noticed a cloud of black coming over the water.  "What's that?"

 

I stopped counting as I got to 600.... there had to be well over 1,000 Cormorant in a group flying from the Leslie Spit, moving west, to feed.  This is a small  fraction of the number of Cormorants in the Toronto area.  The Cormorants were also very, very prevelant at the Thousand Islands as well, they seem to be everywhere in numbers.  I am working on posting those pics tonight, just to show you.  Condo owners in Toronto, near the nesting areas are up in arms over the smell and defoliation/damage they cause.

 

Regardless of the number or the problem, this isn't how you treat animals. The individual involved is heartless and will not just stop at just the Cormorant.  He has to be stopped, charged and made an example of.

 

More importantly, the area needs to be protected with signs and some enforcement.  My goal is to make this happen.

Amen, here it's the Candian geese they have taken over every small pond and lake but I love them and there are humane ways to take care of them.

In the end I prefer to live with them than without!!!!!

Geese will avoid dead-goose decoys.  I saw some of these on the lawn of a business once and thought they were the real thing.  There were NO live geese anywhere near them.
