California Killed 1.2 Million Birds To Stop a Virus. Pet Owners Say They Were Terrorized.

January 14, 2020


Dolores? Run, run Dolores. Do they have Dolores? They got her. Oh my God, they got Oreo. My home is being terrorized, my animals are being slaughtered. You could hear them in the trash can,
thumping around trying to get out, trying to get air, trying to breathe, trying to
survive. This is not right this is not just, and this is not humane. These are my pets, these are my kids pets. Dear God, they’re all dead. Everybody, they’re all dead. Backyard chicken owners are a passionate breed. At first we thought chickens were just dumb chickens, but you do fall in love with them. I would play chase with one outside and he’d bite me, and take off running, then come back to me, and oh we’d play. I’d sit on the ground and talk to my chickens, maybe, a lot of people think that’s crazy but those chickens understood. I have a few old ladies that they have house chickens. Their chickens live in the house with diapers. Kerri Hand is a retired cop who lives in rural Riverside County, California. She became a chicken owner for the eggs but then she fell in love. This is where I would sit, right here. Pretty view, and the horses, and having the birds. It was just very relaxing to me. As Hand’s family grew so did her flock. My 13 year old son, he’s a war buff, history buff, so for this kids 13th birthday he wants a Civil War Turkey. That’s Dolores, was her name, and she literally stole the hearts of many. She would jump on you, like she was a parrot. When you go sit outside she’d hop on your lap she had her little leash the neighbors loved
her with Walker in December of 2018 and returned home to find an ominous notice
stuck on her door it was from the California Department of Food and
Agriculture and it said there was an outbreak of a highly deadly avian virus
in her neighborhood very little castle disease has been diagnosed in Southern
California protests in the Inland Empire over the killing of thousands of
chickens euthanized doctors say to prevent a virus from spreading
birds infected with virulent Newcastle disease and their eggs are perfectly
safe to eat but the virus can wipe out massive flocks and
state and federal health officials had ordered all birds across several
counties under immediate quarantine including hands over the next year and a
half officials searched thousands of homes and farms and identified just
under five hundred infections after deciding that quarantine wasn’t enough
they ordered the mandatory euthanasia of over 1.2 million birds in high-risk
areas surrounding infections including healthy Birds that tested negative for
the virus as the euthanasia teams began to spread out in early 2019 hand created
a Facebook group called save our Birds after reading numerous horror stories
from those targeted and started organizing volunteers to show up at
kills and film on their phones this is so outrageous I can’t make it up people
literally if you tell them about this chicken problem they will look at you
like you are a crazy these measures may have been necessary
to prevent the spread of the Newcastle virus but according to the bird owners
who spoke with reason health officials carried out their
duties in a cruel manner leaving bird owning families with lasting emotional
scars hand complied with the state’s quarantine orders for months and paid to
have her birds tested by a veterinarian but the state ordered the destruction of
her flock anyway the news came by way of another notice stuck to her front door
in April 20 19 it has a box checked that they were gonna be coming to kill my
chickens hand decided to challenge the order since her Birds had tested
negative for the Newcastle virus just that week and remained fully quarantine
I’ve complied with you I I haven’t done anything my birds aren’t sick the state
responded with a surprise operation as hand and her family were preparing to
celebrate Good Friday a team of police and state workers dressed in biohazard
suits arrived at her house with a search warrant and in order to kill her
family’s flock it was like it looked like a drug raid is what it looked like
we are going to humanely euthanize these birds today and recorded and shared live
video of the slaughter in her Facebook group save our birds and it went viral my birds are dead the deputy goes gets
the big bolt cutters they could cut my fence apart Oh Dolores which was the
first what are the first ones they went after and they grabbed her she was very
friendly she would come when you called her and they literally like grabbed her
by the neck and like swagger I’m not sure if they snapped her neck or not but
they might have they threw away the trash kid I need you relax
they don’t the way you hit is workers kill birds by breaking their necks
shooting them with firearms or suffocating them with co2 gas methods
that officials maintain are humane but hand disputes that claim she recalls
that workers placed her birds in a trash can with no viewing window forcing them
to lift the lid to check if the birds had died each time oxygen leaked in
prolonging the process the floppy and you could hear the birds crying like a
squawking to get out and this sounds like you can’t unhear those sounds my
kids you could hear him in the house screaming out the windows I have a metal
container in my backyard and you could hear like the pinging of the bullets or
gunshots like pinging off of it I mean my horses are just running Oh like dust
everywhere it was like it’s like a like a nightmare movie that I couldn’t even
make it up they left feathers they left a little
bone part after God they’re all dead everybody they’re all dead after her
video went viral hands Facebook group became a place for thousands of local
bird owners to share information and support one another it just kind of
evolved into hey if they show up we’ll come be there for you I’m here I’m
another side again but you want to know why our healthy chickens had to die
Gena crews got chickens as therapy animals for her sons one of whom has
autism and fragile X syndrome and the other PTSD from combat my son with PTSD
would go out there and feed them every morning religiously and talk with them
and grab them and hold them and say oh my baby and to each and every one of
them Cruz consented to her pets euthanasia despite the fact that
officials had found them negative for Newcastle as long as the process could
take place while her son’s weren’t home but when state workers arrived at her
house for the scheduled appointment reporters and members of hands safe our
Birds group were already there filming they abruptly left she tells me what is
this circus she says we’re gonna reschedule
Gena we’re gonna reschedule the next week several police cars unexpectedly
pulled up to Cruz’s house her son with PTSD was home he came out and he watched
his chickens his babies be killed so I went and I said my goodbyes and and my
think used to them for for all the joy that they had brought to our family my
son with autism there’s not a day that goes by that he doesn’t ask for them and
asked me to ask the bad guys to bring his chickens back han says that her
teenage son is wracked with guilt that he didn’t do more to save his beloved
Civil War Turkey Delores in the bathroom crying at school so people wouldn’t make
fun of him when he tells me he thinks he hears her and he tells you he goes
messes with my mind hand and other members of save our Birds alleged
they’ve documented scores of abuses by state workers and police they killed
about six to eight of the gals Pitts stopped told her they were at the wrong
house left they won’t leave the paperwork with
you to review or if you don’t speak English or you can’t read it they tell
them we’re gonna come back with the warrant and break your locks and come on
your property if you don’t sign this right now this is true then I need about
when they stepped on the baby junk what’d they say over there oh it was
human error human error look what you did and then they left it there to die
as a former cop hand is also troubled that courts are handing law enforcement
vast powers to target innocent bird owners they’re treating it as a criminal
nature warrant but these people aren’t criminals none of them I don’t
understand it I’ve never seen any such warrant there’s no property description
there’s nobody’s name and it basically gives them the rights to go to any
property they want to go to in Riverside County months after hand and Cruz’s
chickens were disposed of state officials have continued to search their
properties using the same administrative warrant even when they’re not home
they’ve already come back for a recheck there’s a hundred and twenty day period
they say they’re gonna come back up to ten times twice fully suited and go
through the yard to make sure we haven’t restocked the safe our birds members
also say they’ve been subjected to surveillance for months they try to get
neighbors against neighbors they go into other’s backyards to try to look around
going by very slow staring at us taking pictures taking video I’m in a red light
huge peoples on next week I Roger how you doing we’re like this all the time
you know that’s a hell of a way to new animal health officials who declined to
speak with reason have defended their actions on the grounds that backyard
chicken enthusiasts practice lacks biosecurity and exacerbated previous
outbreaks of Newcastle in California and that they faced intimidation from
members of hands Facebook group we make it say is that the group here
starts to get a bit rowdy and they start making our people and they intimidate
the USDA says it’s allocated 45 million dollars in emergency funds for the
Newcastle response but California officials have declined to say how much
they’re spending it isn’t believable the amount of manpower and force and
officers and people and cars I mean the whole totality of it all
officials currently have no plans to end the quarantine and the euthanasia
campaign continues any kind of information any kind of transparency we
need that and without that we’ve lost trust in them in their tactics their
bullying and their inhumane echinacea and and her core group of volunteers
have pooled their resources to contest the state’s warrants but the outlook is
bleak you’re on your own these chicken killers
they don’t care what they got a turn easy that’s the government I mean
they’ve got all this money yeah they got all this money and I got upset with him
out there cuz I says you know what I fought for your freedom I fought for my
country and I almost got killed I says so that we could live free and live what
you know live how we want to we were we don’t break no laws we don’t hurt nobody
and it’s it’s bigger than just a chicken because what’s next what are you gonna
come to my house and come barreling in here for they continue to film and
support targeted bird owners but they live in fear of California’s animal
health officials sign right here you can either sign if you fail to sign you’re
gonna be taken into custody you know come on Kerry I’m a nervous wreck every
Dodge Ram that I see passed by I believe is them I don’t know if I’ll ever be the
same for me that day it changed a lot because the system I believed in the
badge I want swore the oath I took the integrity I thought that officials had
and and what we’re supposed to trust you can’t you

    Hol' up. 2:26 There's a detection OUTSIDE of the quarantine area.

    Killing the infected to prevent a larger outbreak that could destabilize an entire ecosystem. Detestable but understandable.
    Killing healthy animals who MIGHT get infected in the future is just cruel. What about all of the trauma caused to these families? Is the state going to pay for psychiatric treatment? Not gonna happen. This is a massive overreach of authority and should have been met with armed resistance. My pets are family and I'd kill to protect my family. This is inexcusable.

    Getting serious Nazi Germany vibes from this. Mass executions without a SUBSTANTIAL reasonable cause cannot be allowed to go unpunished. People who think "Oh, they're just birds" need to seriously consider the implications. Today it's your pets. Tomorrow it's the disabled, the elderly, your parents, your siblings. Holy shit. This is America today.

    Think what kind of backlash would have occurred if the government wanted to execute PEOPLE who MIGHT have had the possibility of becoming infected with Ebola. This totalitarian abuse of power is deplorable. If people let this slide it just goes to show how desensitized people are becoming. Hell, they might have gotten away with it.

    Of all the things to go viral, this should be one of them.

    Being originally from China, this reminds me of mao ordering the whole country to kill millions if not billions of sparrows simply out of a stupid thought he came up with in a chat with his general, to show his absolute control over the country. And along with the socialist practice called “The Great Leap Forward”, as part of the reason why there was 3 consecutive years of famine in the following 3 years 1959 – 1962, which starved at least 30 millions Chinese to death, according to his minister in later years.

    These nasty power addicted communists are the worst of all forms of life. And sad to see the country once led by Ronald Reagan, the man who inspired me and freed me from the communist propaganda I was instilled with as a child in China, is turning into a another big government hellhole.

    As I’m escaping California for another state, I hope true Americans stand their ground, remember, if America loses freedom, Americans will have nowhere to escape to. If Jefferson was alive, he should be leading the patriots to “Refresh the Tree” already.

These assholes refuse to fix the problems in their cities and instead they want the people to think they know how to fix a problem they dont have any clue about! have to ask how many of these people voted for the very loser that gave the power to law enforcement in the first place.

    This is terrible journalism. Only shows one side of the story. On the order of 10x-100x the number of Chickens would have died had the government not stepped in. It's disappointing for everyone involved, not just the chicken owners, but it had to be done.

    Didn't interview or show any interviews of people working on the program. Totally one-sided opinion of what happened here. Of course it looks terrible showing the people who's chickens were killed only. The truth is that if they hadn't done this millions more chickens were likely to have died when the infection spread. Why not discuss why they felt that the quarantine zone was inadequate to save the livestock? The Chinese government refused to acknowledege a pig bourne virus, and as a result one half to two thirds of pigs in China have died or been killed to stop the spread of a deadly infection there, if they had done it earlier pork prices would have stayed much much lower, and fewer pigs would have died.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
         Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me

    Hmm… The Dekulakization and The Four Pests Campaigns went down very similarly to this.

    There are consequences to decades of voting Democrat. The Democrats in California have created a police state and only the voters can change that. This video looks like it was filmed in Venezuela.

    5:00 Yeah, the lids should have had a window, but oxygen leaked in? CO2 molecules are more than twice as heavy as O2 molecules. If anything, oxygen was leaking out

    Plus the fact that only the Government could find a way that it takes $48.00 per bird to kill a chicken. This project in 2019 cost over $72 million dollars and less than $5 million of that was to compensate owners for the lost off the birds.

    "Bill Mattos, president of the California Poultry Federation, applauded the stepped-up efforts but said more help may be needed to eliminate the disease, which is highly contagious among poultry.

    “The federal funding wasn’t coming as quickly as it was in 2002-2003,” said Mattos, whose group represents the state’s $2.5 billion commercial chicken industry. “I think this new funding will help us get the people we need to eradicate the disease. But we’re not out of the woods yet. We may need more funding.” "

    Welcome to California,i feel for these poor people, but everyone needs to know these people feel the same about you if you get in their way. They would have shot these people if they resisted.

    Wow, weird how in the most left leaning state the government can be paid off by big companies to kill your pets. It's almost like the government is an uncaring entity with too much power and money.
