A rich amount of death

(1/1)

Cudzoziemiec:

--- Quote ---He said the countryside has been “tidied up”, with not enough death for scavengers and predators to feed on, and often slings roadkill up onto the table. “All the livestock that dies is supposed to be taken away and incinerated, which leaves birds feeding on roads and highways on squashed rats,” he said. “When white-tailed eagles come inland, there’s nothing for them to eat except roadkill. We wanted to provide a rich amount of death for them to feed on.
