More craziness from the government is their prosecution of North Dakota Oil companies for the deaths of 28 birds in their oil waste pits. The Migratory Bird Treaty Act exacts 6 months in prison and $15,000 fine for each charge.
It is estimated that 400,000 fowl (including eagles) annually are converted to bird-burgers by windmills. The Wind Farms, being the favored green energy producers, are immune from reprisals for their negative impact on the environment.
U.S. Attorney, Timothy Purdon, who is pursuing the oil companies, is unaffected by the obvious discrimination and unequal application of laws.
