Vikings stadium kills hundreds of birds per year
A friend of mine back in MN shared this article on Facebook this morning:
As a bird lover this makes me so angry! A giant glass building killing birds by flying into it, you don't say!! Stupid fucking morons. Not sure which part makes me angrier actually--this, or the fact that they made MN taxpayers pay for it. They kept begging for it for years and years and finally got it, never mind that there was nothing wrong with the Metrodome (other than the roof collapsing on occasion anyway) in the first place. Let the teams pay for their own damn stadiums, and prove they deserve it by winning something once in a while! Just one more reason to hate the NFL and the Vikings.
But I guess sportsball entertainment is more important than the environment and wildlife they are disrupting.
I don't know if there's anything we can do about it either, except hope that they do the right thing and put the less-reflective coating on it. Rant over.
