Why did the USDA poison birds in South Dakota?

    A biologist working for the USDA said that the starlings were poisoned because they were causing problems for cattle feedlots in northern Nebraska. The birds were eating the food meant for the cattle, and then defecating on the property. Many of the birds died on the cattle lot in Nebraska, but about 200 flew to Yankton, South Dakota before dying. According to USDA biologist Ricky Woods, it was the “last resort.”
