Killing Wildlife Permit at Delta Turf Farm should be illegal.

Wildlife News



The following is an open letter I just sent to the local and provincial governments as well as the media:

Today, June 12, 2016, my phone has rung off the wall in response to extensive shooting of gulls, crows and starlings and …..?? at the Delta Turf Farm on 72nd Ave. in Delta, BC.

As many people know the Turf Farm has taken on the processing of a significant part of the 'organic waste' from the Vancouver Landfill immediately to the north across Highway 99.  The Turf Farm policy of exposing these food sources openly for scavengers to feast upon, particularly in the location immediately between the Boundary Bay Airport active runway (10m across the road to the east) and a new major Highway 17 (South Fraser Perimeter Road bordering the Turf Farm to the west), not only endangers many wildlife species mentioned above but exposes bald eagles to incredible threat of traffic and aircraft as well as the direct threat to vehicular human life and aircraft passengers approaching the Boundary Bay Airport.  Both vehicle traffic and aircraft at this location I understand have already collided with eagles.  I suspect each level of government will be party to some pending law suit for allowing this egregious land-use policy.


I find the issuance of a 'kill permit' to both be an obscene way of handling an obvious Turf Farm self-induced problem, supported by Delta City authorization, and an incredible option threatening the several bald eagles nests that are located within a few yards of this killing site.  One active nest is right on the property.  I do not know if the 'kill permit' demands the use of non-lead shot or not but this would be an additional and unnecessary risk to local wildlife.

In short I can forecast a major human outcry and uprising of concerned citizens in the entire lower mainland (and from afar!) against this incredibly irresponsible way of controlling wildlife.  I have early pointed out to the Federal, Provincial and Local agencies some of the risks of this irresponsibly placed food-processing business.  The liability of the Provincial, Federal and local City government agencies seems blatantly obvious and disrespectful to our wildlife resource.

Since I have previously drawn this issue to your attention, and received no response, I now feel obliged, under pressure of the alarmed public, to take this regrettable wildlife killing to the next level of concern.  I understand the Turf Farm owner says he will not kill eagles but his vary actions are resulting in eagle deaths.  This re-cycling project immediately needs to be halted at this location and relocated or totally placed under cover.

I would appreciate being informed (1) about the merits of damage caused by wildlife that enabled someone to have such a 'wildlife kill permit', (2) the options being taken to stop this unnecessary wildlife killing and further endangerment of human life (road and airport!) and (3) is there some monitoring of this killing with evaluation of its effectiveness?  It seems unnecessary to point out that the immediate nesting of bald eagles from 3m to 300m from this site constitutes a disturbance to protected nesting wildlife.

Sincerely,

David Hancock
