A Bald eagle gets hit by a turbine. But there happens to be witnesses that haven't signed wind industry non disclosure agreements.
This eagle is just one the thousands being killed annually by the green bastards. But this just happened to be one that couldn't be hidden. As it is, the few accidental sightings like this one, that can't be hidden with corruption, are the only ones we hear about.
"BOWLING GREEN — As they labored trying to start a broken down truck near the north end of the Wood County Landfill, Ken Vollmar, superintendent of the facility, and one of his employees felt the bite of the winter chill. Their cold hands had their attention as one of the four wind turbines located at the site spun nearby.
But then they heard a loud thump and turned to witness a large bird tumbling to the frozen ground. What they soon learned was the severed wing of the bird floated in its slower descent and landed about 50 feet away."
This was likely an adult male bald eagle out hunting for active nest located within several miles of this turbine. If so the eggs or the chicks will die. A terrible but common wind energy impact, almost never mentioned by the media or this disgusting industry. USFWS agents, will also not followup on the likelihood of the impacted eagle nest or report the truth back to the public. That's because it is part of their job to conceal the truth about wind energy impacts from the public.
Had this eagle not been seen by these witnesses it would have been found shortly because turbines are routinely checked by wind personnel looking for bodies of eagles and other special status species. I know this for a fact because of a secret meeting I had with a Wind Tech. I was told eagles are easy to spot around turbines and at just one wind farm in 2015 five eagles were found around turbines in 1 month.
Here is an absurd and fraudulent statement from the article.........."The report he filed on the kill indicated the dead bird was an adult bald eagle, a species safeguarded under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act."
Article forgot to mention all of this......Wind turbines are the biggest killer of bald eagles in this country and this industry has gotten a free pass for their slaughter for decades. Also thanks to our corrupt Interior Department and a criminally fraudulent wind industry, since 2016, turbines can kill up 4200 bald eagles a year in the US. But the truth is they could really kill ten thousand a year and just keep hiding bodies like they've done for decades. All done with the help of complicit USFWS agents that ship the carcasses off to the Denver Repository.
Theses two entities do their best to conceal every incident so this Enron based industry can keep on building these monsters and keep soaking taxpayers.
This fraud has been going on this the public since at least July 5 1989, when the first bald eagle turbine mortality was reported then covered up.
Anybody with an IQ over 80 can Identify an immature Bald Eagle from a golden eagle. In 1989 when a Bald eagle was still an endangered species, word of this fatality got out. This cover story was put out to to create doubt and nothing was ever written again. Images were never shown to the public.
In 2016, while the wind industry was trying to get permission to kill thousands of bald eagles each year, the AWEA busy was proclaiming all the "standardized" green lies to the public about turbines killing few eagles. The link I have to to this fraud filled web page was taken down long ago and is no longer valid.
