Salt Plains refuge personnel to scare off sandhill cranes with propane cannons Local news The Enid News and Eagle, Enid, OK
excerpts from above:
Quote:
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service personnel from Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge have set up propane cannons to scare sandhill cranes away from fields where more than 150 of the birds have died after eating moldy peanuts.
Quote:
Some peanuts normally are left on fields after harvest, but due to wet weather conditions last fall, peanuts and other grains became affected by mold. A random sampling of cranes was sent into the National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, Wis.
