White Pelicans Found Shot to Death in Northeast Kansas (Reward)

Pelicans really are breathtakingly beautiful.
The white pelican's wingspan is 108 inches!
!! At 62 inches long it is the largest bird in Kansas...

I'd pulled over to the side of a country road to photograph some Bald Eagles once
and was startled to see a long languid line of these birds headed for Tuttle Creek Reservoir...

On the news tonight it was reported that a reward is offered for info leading to the conviction of whoever killed several of these protected migrating birds. Seven pelicans appeared to be killed all at the same time...

"...A game warden in northern Kansas is asking the public for help to find anyone connected to the shooting death of seven American white pelicans.
Jewell County game warden Mike Peterson says he found the federally protected birds shot to death in Lovewell Reservoir on Friday...."


"...The Salina Journal reports ( ) the pelicans are protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and those who shot the birds would be subject to fines and jail time.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Jewell county game warden at (620) 450-7190 or call Operation Game Thief at (877) 426-3843..."

What is Fukushima Doing to our Oceans and the Planet?

(and why isn't the mainstream media telling us?}
HERE is a compendium of information:'ve-opened-gates-hell

It's not good.
Like, Wormwood bad.

earlier details about the oceans, loss of sealife, posts HERE

Since the alarm is not being sounded by the so-called journalist and media-- ordinary people, like lifetime divers, are now trying to alert the public.

the plow that broke the prairie

ARC Identifier 13595 / Local Identifier 96.2. The film presents the social and economic history of the Great Plains -- from the time of the settlement of the prairies, through the World War I boom, to the years of depression and drought. The first part of the film shows cattle as they grazed on grasslands, and homesteaders who hurried onto the plains and grew large wheat crops. The second part depicts the postwar decline of the wheat market, which resulted in overproduction. Footage shows farm equipment used, then abandoned. The third part shows a dust storm as it rendered a farm useless. Subsequent scenes show farmers as they left their homes and headed west. Department of Agriculture. Farm Security Administration. Information Division. (ca. 1937 - ca. 1942). Note that this is the version without the epilogue.
