Please visit the NYC Audubon Website, nycaudubon.org, for information about the recent culling of Snowy Owls at JFK Airport. The site has information about how you can encourage public officials to use non-lethal stragegies to control the Snowy Owl populations around the airport. It includes a change.org petition to sign.
Non-lethal methods have been used very effectively for years at Logan Airport in Boston. There is no reason to shoot the owls.
Update 12/10/13: The Port Authority issued a press release that the will now use non-lethal methods to relocate Snowy Owls at Laguardia and John F. Kennedy Airports.
