According to Reports reaching oyogist.com, President Trump’s administration has finally taking a decisive Stand concerning the 102-year-old Migratory Bird Treaty Act, that would defend industries from taking responsibility if they “incidentally” killed birds.
The judgement passed by the Trump Administration would likely weaken the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hence leading to more bird deaths due to the fact that several companies, construction firms and land developers would have lesser motivation in protecting the lives of these birds.
“This proposed rule clarifies that the scope of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act applies only to intentional injuring or killing of birds,” a statement from U.S. Fish and Wildlife said.
“Conduct that results in the unintentional (incidental) injury or death of migratory birds is not prohibited under the act.” It further read.
Meanwhile several Attorneys general in New York, Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon, California and New Mexico, have protested against Trump’s administration role.
