Parts of Europe are now "death traps" for migrating songbirds, according to the Committee Against Bird Slaughter, which reports that millions of birds are illegally poached each year. The birds are often either pickled or poached for a Cypriot "delicacy"

They may be a delicacy to the Cypriots but to most people they are beautiful songbirds to enjoy

Done. And they say that cats are killing off millions of birds???? Hmmm sure looks like humans are the ones doing the killing. Go and find something else to eat and leave our beautiful Songbirds alone.

Thanks, Cher, noted, signed and commented: "This slaughter of millions of songbirds a year, an unprosecuted criminal offense for 39 years, speaks badly for your country's reputation, particularly since you are causing the extinction of many of these species by looking the other way and failing to prosecute. I would want to visit Cyprus, if it weren't for this."

It concerns birds, so you know I most definitely noted, signed with comment below, twittered and google shared. Thanks Cher.
I find this slaughter to be so vicious and cruel. Are you running out of other food sources that you now have to turn to illegally killing migrating songbirds, many of which are endangered? Killing birds just so that people can eat a "delicacy" is wrong. Plain and simple. You should be ashamed for needlessly slaughtering birds, especially in the manner in which it is being done.

This is why I hate Chef Anthony Bourdain so much- he willingly ate an endangered songbird, just because it is a "delicacy" and he wanted to taste it for himself.

I suppose the government of Cyprus might be involved in this or is receiving payoffs not to prosecute. Whatever the truth is, the government seems to be at the least criminally negligent. Signed and noted, thanks, Cher.
