Who You Should Contact

This poor little guy is one of the few remaining quakers in West Haven. UI will be back to try to kill the remaining soon.

Please folks - take a moment to call, e-mail or write the following people. Hundreds of birds have been killed so far; perhaps we can save the remainder from their cruel fate.

If you care about free-range parrots in the USA, and the idea that they're now being killed en masse in Connecticut makes you heartsick, I want you to make some phone calls. Pick up the phone, be friendly, be civil, be peaceful, be polite, but be firm. Tell these people you don't want wild parrots killed in Connecticut.

PLEASE Continue to email, call , phone these legislators and your own district legislators to keep them aware that there are alternatives to killing the Monk Parakeets and that the laws that allowed this mass slaughter must be changed!

Corey Slavitt is the gal at USDA who claims, for reasons that I can't fathom, that these killings are somehow "humane." USDA, not UI, is the entity actually gassing the parrots. You can reach Corey at (301) 734-8563. Also let Monty Chandler, of the USDA, know how you feel. Monty's at (413)-253- 2403. You can also send feedback to the USDA using this form. Tell them that they should get out of the parrot-killing business, and focus on keeping our food supply safe.
