That's preposterous. You will NEVER be given an option like that, so why mention it? Even if you were given that option, would you really "save" your family member? They will eventually die anyway..... of something. So now you have a dead family member AND no birds in the state. Next thing you know, there is an insect explosion in New Mexico. Rodents run rampant with many of their predators now gone. Predators have no birds to eat, so they go for your children. Other family members get West Nile from the mosquitos and still more family members get Hanta Virus from the mice. Now you have more sick and dying family members than you could imagine. Eventually you are alone in the world. You can't even watch your feeders anymore, because they are empty.... except for the rodents enjoying the food you set out for them.<quoted text>Birds pale in comparison to people. I would kill every bird in this state if it would save just one of my family members! Birds are individuals just like Corporations! Some people need blown up and some birds need killed. I am all for doing both!Life only matters to those who control it, and to those who are having it controlled!
Moral of the story- it would be lonely without birds.
