Bird Mincers Finally Fined

The Greenie lobby has always been strangely silent on the damage to our feathered friends caused by wind turbines . If eagles were being chewed up by any other industrial machine the noise from the cappucine crusaders would be deafening. In the US a power company has finally been fined for the death of eagles and other birds caused by these ugly monstrosities.
A MAJOR US power company has pleaded guilty to killing eagles and other birds at two wind farms and agreed to pay $1 million as part of the first enforcement of laws protecting birds against wind energy facilities.
Until the settlement announced on Friday with Duke Energy and its renewable energy arm, no wind energy company had been prosecuted for a death of an eagle or other protected bird.
The company pleaded guilty to killing 14 eagles and 149 other birds at its Top of the World and Campbell Hill wind farms outside Casper, Wyoming.
The deaths, which included golden eagles, hawks, blackbirds, wrens and sparrows, occurred from 2009 to 2013.
