0.68% of air traffic accidents attributable to “bird strikes,” all others attributable to faulty maintenance, mechanical problems, pilot error. How can the Mayor claim these birds are being killed in the name of “air safety?” Less than 1%
Send a message to the mayor that NYC rejects one more year of yet another attack on our area’s wildlife! 2010 kill-contract expires July 15 – It cannot be renewed!
