I don't know if this story is more ironic than tragic.

The bald eagle and all animals inherited the earth long before man was a spark in God's eye. I believe God goofed when he made Adam & Eve. All this inhumanity to animals could've been avoided if Eve hadn't listened to the dam serpent. Sadly noted.

Noted, twittered and google shared. This really makes me angry. Did they really have to choose that specific spot knowing that is was obviously bald eagle habitat? I mean, seriously? They didn't think that maybe moving where they chose to build the turbines would have been better instead of destroying that nest and making the area inhabitable for bald eagles. I do support wind energy but not at the cost of innocent lives.

That is so sad, frankly I am not shocked Mankind deserves to be in a frigging CAGE! Let the animals RULE the Earth.

I saw nothing to sign? This is so sad and so typical of the wind industry. In both our countries the wind people are rushing to garner the subsidy dollars and completely ignoring safe siting recommendations as best they can.

They have yet to implement technology, except at one site in the US in TX, that would protect migrating birds and bats from death by windmill. It's very doable but a bit to expensive for their profit margins. For these reasons I no longer am a wind power advocate. They are as bad as the oil and gas people.

Cher,
Can you get this under the environment heading that it deserves? This info needs to be widely known and publicized. Unfortunately, it is hardly "odd" news.

I love birds of prey but I don't want to depend on coal for energy. I do agree that the birds were there first and the wind farm belonged somewhere else.

Terrible decision. They should have picked another place for the turbine.
