Don't Cull Me Bro

by Avem



The hatred towards the Double Crested Cormorant goes as far back as the Old Testament, and hasn't slowed one bit. You can imagine what farmers/fishermen called this bird in the 50s. "Open for Business" Ontario is apparently closed for the DCC, as the PC gov't has proposed a cull on these birds between the months of March & December. This is the ENTIRE time they are in our province. Due to successful lobbying efforts by commercial fisheries, a limit of 50 birds per day was recommended. This figure is NOT backed by any scientific evidence and is a major worry to their long-term survival in our province. DDT almost wiped them out once, now DDF (Dirty Doug Ford) is out to finish the job. Check out www.animalalliance.ca/cormorantpersecution/ for more info, and Don't Cull Me, Bro!


twas in Leviticus and Zephaniah
that lies about our kind were first told
they said we are unclean, we are destructive beasts
and we do not deserve to live old

don't cull me bro
i'm just a bird that lives in trees or on the shore
don't cull me bro
population control does not mean kill them all

a dozen yellow perch a hundred alewife
is all that i need to live my day
human destruction of mother nature
and i'm the one who has to go away
