State of Idaho plans to poison up to 4,000 Common Ravens. 
Justification: Ravens prey on the eggs of the imperiled Greater Sage-Grouse. Yet of 19 reasons for the grouse’s declining numbers, predation by other wildlife comes in at #12. Providing protected areas and requiring sustainable land management are the most important ways to conserve the grouse, not killing avian predators.

It’s really close, please sign guys!

killing one species to ‘protect’ another is a horrible approach to anything. Have people not learned by now? And how many other animals would this inevitably poison? Ones that would also not only ingest the poison, but the poisoned bird carcasses.What is wrong with people.

Crows and Ravens hold a sacred position in the Mythos of North America, they should be honored and revered not murdered. 

SIGN THIS PLEASE
I LOVE RAVENS SO MUCH PLEASE DON’T LET THEM KILL THESE RAVENS

PLEASE take a moment to sign and reblog! Corvids are my absolute favorite bird, they’re so smart and beautiful and absolutely amazing! I can’t believe this would be approved!

The most ridiculous part about this is that the sage grouse has become endangered due to human activities - us moving into their territory, etc., and there isn’t actually any proof that killing these ravens would do anything to protect the sage grouse! It might work and it might not, it’s basically just a shot in the dark, but either way this is NOT the answer! We need to change our own behavior, not punish an animal for being a predator!


Poisons are also extremely deadly to non target animals. This will kill more than ravens.

It was common practice in antiquity to dedicate representations of afflicted parts at a healing shrine, either as an offering of thanks for a cure or in hope of one. The inscription on this marble relief reads: Ἀσκληπίῳ καὶ Ὑγ(ι)είᾳ εὐχαριστήριον, and can be translated as ‘Tyche [dedicated this] to Asklepios and Hygieia as a thank offering’. Hygieia was the female companion of Asklepios, the god of medicine and son of Apollo, and is often represented with him. The shape of the Greek letter ‘S’ after the first ‘A’ allows us to date the relief to the Roman period.
The relief was found in 1828 in the same sanctuary on Mílos as a colossal marble head of Asklepios himself. A round votive altar was also found, inscribed with a dedication to Asklepios and Hygieia by a priest named Claudius Gallinus.

the-blood-of-history:

Catherine the Great (2 May 1729 – 17 November 1796), was the most renowned and the longest-ruling female leader of Russia, reigning from 9 July 1762 until her death in 1796 at the age of sixty-seven. Her reign was called Russia’s golden age. She was born in Stettin, Pomerania, Prussia and came to power following a coup d’état and the assassination of her husband, Peter III, at the end of the Seven Years’ War. Russia was revitalized under her reign, growing larger and stronger than ever and becoming recognized as one of the great powers of Europe.
In both her accession to power and in rule of her empire, Catherine often relied on her noble favourites, most notably Grigory Orlov and Grigory Potemkin. She governed at a time when the Russian Empire was expanding rapidly by conquest and diplomacy. In the south, the Crimean Khanate was crushed following victories over the Ottoman Empire in the Russo-Turkish wars, and Russia colonised the vast territories of Novorossiya along the coasts of the Black and Azov Seas. In the west, the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, ruled by Catherine’s former lover, king Stanisław August Poniatowski, was eventually partitioned, with the Russian Empire gaining the largest share. In the east, Russia started to colonise Alaska, establishing Russian America.
Catherine reformed the administration of Russian guberniyas, and many new cities and towns were founded on her orders. An admirer of Peter the Great, Catherine continued to modernise Russia along Western European lines. However, military conscription and economy continued to depend on serfdom, and the increasing demands of the state and private landowners led to increased levels of reliance on serfs. This was one of the chief reasons behind several rebellions, including the large-scale Pugachev’s Rebellion of Cossacks and peasants.

Our difficulty in believing the- for want of a better word- political inspiration of the Devil is due in great part to the fact that he is called up and damned not only by our social antagonists but by our own side, whatever it may be… In the countries of the Communist ideology, all resistance of any import is linked to the totally malign capitalist succubi, and in America any man who is not reactionary in his views is open to the charge of alliance with the Red hell. Political opposition, thereby, is given an inhumane overlay which then justifies the abrogation of all normally applied customs of civilized intercourse. A political policy is equated with moral right, and opposition to it with diabolical malevolence. Once such an equation is effectively made, society becomes a congerie of plots and counterplots, and the main role of government changes from that of the arbiter to that of the scourge of God.
