PORTLAND, OREGON – U.S. federal government officials have killed more than 1,000 seabirds on an Oregon island since May to protect endangered salmon as part of a plan that environmentalists say is flawed and are seeking to stop with a lawsuit.
So far, 1,221 adult cormorants have been killed and more than 5,000 nests destroyed, U.S. officials said Friday, adding the killing is expected to continue until mid- to late October when the seabirds migrate for the winter.
