How would you describe Michael J. Begier's job?

The national coordinator of the Department of Agriculture's Airport Wildlife Hazards Program is the man who makes troublesome birds go away.

I would describe M Bergier as a psychopath.

Ever experienced a starling infestation, Skas?

Zoo animals and poor people need to eat too. This guy saves more lives than you realize.

I'm guessing the 50% who voted for killer would be the FIRST ONES to sue the airline, the FAA, and the Dept. of Agriculture if a plane they were on went down due to a bird strike. Assuming they were all lucky enough to have survived, that is. Idiots who value animal lives over people's lives aren't really worth my time in commenting on, come to think of it.

Mr Begier is doing a job that most people take for granted and is doing so in a way that both prevents, protects and gives back.

Now if we could only get someone at the highway administration to thin the deer population, we'd all be better off.

So if your plane goes down due to birds your family or you if you are lucky enough to survive should except your fate and not expect any compensation from the airline.

Notice the increase in the population of the Canada Geese - in spite of the human population increases.

Time to stop listening to animal rights myths, wouldn't you say? seems like that's one wild population that's doing very well indeed.
