Who You Should Contact
Please folks - take a moment to call, e-mail or write the following people. Hundreds of birds have been killed so far; perhaps we can save the remainder from their cruel fate.
If you care about free-range parrots in the USA, and the idea that they're now being killed en masse in Connecticut makes you heartsick, I want you to make some phone calls. Pick up the phone, be friendly, be civil, be peaceful, be polite, but be firm. Tell these people you don't want wild parrots killed in Connecticut.
PLEASE Continue to email, call , phone these legislators and your own
district legislators to keep them aware that there are alternatives to
killing the Monk Parakeets and that the laws that allowed this mass
slaughter must be changed!

Al Carbone is the guy who's the PR rep for United Illuminating, the company that started this whole mad eradication campaign. You can reach Al at: (203) 671-4421.
Also, please call Al's boss,
Woodson, Chairman of the Board and CEO
Corey Slavitt is the gal at USDA who
claims, for reasons that I can't fathom,
that these killings are somehow "humane."
USDA, not UI, is the entity actually gassing
the parrots. You can reach Corey at (301)
734-8563. Also let Monty Chandler, of the
USDA, know how you feel. Monty's at
(413)-253- 2403. You can also send feedback
to the USDA using this form. Tell them that
they should get out of the parrot-killing
business, and focus on keeping our food
Dennis Schain is the guy in the
Connecticut DEPA who calls the monk
parakeets "invasive," which means, I guess,
that it's OK to kill them. You can reach
Dennis at (860) 424-4117. Also, call Dale
May at (860) 424-3011.
The Connecticut Audubon Society
Remember, folks: be civil. You have truth, justice, and kindness on your side. Please make your point without being nasty -- it doesn't help.
