Humane treatment

Point Pelee National Park cormorant cull done for another year.

The 2010 cull, which spanned four weeks, saw the elimination of 3,627 cormorants. There will be a nest count in June.

“Our focus needs to be on nest reduction,” said Stranak.

The method of shooting the adult breeding male and female cormorants during nest establishment and prior to chick hatching, prevents them from re-nesting and also spares the young from starving or being preyed upon.

“Our guidelines and methods for the cull are monitored very closely by the Animal Care Task Force and several other agencies,” said Stranak.

In fact, an OSPCA officer from the Humane Society observed the cull two years ago and had no concerns about the humane treatment of the wildlife.
