Turf war erupts over federal kill permit for gulls drawn to Delta compost operation

Wildlife News

 

 

 

A Delta turf farm that receives regional food waste for composting has a federal “damage or danger” permit that allows the use of firearms to harass and kill scores of nuisance gulls per year attracted to the operation.

David Hancock of the Hancock Wildlife Foundation said he is outraged at Environment Canada for issuing the permit, saying: “That’s incredible. I find the issuance of a kill permit to be an obscene way of handling an obvious turf-farm, self-induced problem.”

Hancock said in an interview that he received three calls on Sunday from individuals who witnessed multiple gulls being shot on the turf farm.
