You are only responsible for picking up the birds on your own property and the adjoining street. If you don't feel like picking them up then just chop them up with your lawnmower or toss 'em down the sewer.

Yeah but they got rid of those mean old birds didn't they? And anything else that happens to eat the poison left lying around.

Where I live things tossed down the sewer go to a treatment plant. Maybe in NJ all the sht ends up in your drinking water but not here.

I could not sleep for thinking about those poor birds. What if the poison used also kills bees which would result in the trees and farmer's plants never being pollinated. What if some of the poison leeches into the earth and kills fish in the rivers and causes disease from the drinking water. Good God, what were they thinking. Something like this could wipe out all life and destroy the planet!
