Stop the inhumane killing of baby birds that are in nesting in cable boxes

Comcast needs to ensure that birds cannot nest in cable wire/ outlet boxes that are mounted on the sides of many apartment,condo buildings and some homes. If they do find that birds have nested, they should use caution in removing the nests and birds if need be by setting them down in a safe place near a tree or bush. They should also let the local wildlife association know their whereabouts if possible. Ideally, Comcast would make sure older boxes are sealed or replaced with newer animal proof boxes. Recently, there has been an onslaught of killings of baby birds in the Chicago area and surrounding suburbs. Comcast workers have been witnessed flinging the nests out of the boxes onto the streets, and also stepping on and squashing the birds as if they are garbage. Several of these birds have been attempted to be rescued by good Samaritans, or brought into the Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation Center which is a non-for-profit rescue that relies on donations to care for the injured birds or humanly euthanize them if need be. Just today, dozens of apartment buildings in the Downtown Arlington Heights area were raided by the Comcast Technicians. Two workers were witness flinging an almost full grown baby bird to the ground from high placed cable box. The bird was injured and terrified. The workers did the same to all the nests in the buildings and killed several starlings - tossing them to the ground, stepping on them and squashing these nearly full grown baby birds. The poor baby birds were only days away from being able to fly. Several residents have been rescuing the birds, by placing wooden nesting houses in the trees and relocating the surviving starlings. Unfortunately, Comcast continues to kill and hurt the birds - and only a lucky few have survived. Comcast needs to find a solution to this problem and stop workers from harming these defenseless animals. Comcast is a huge company, and a very profitable one as well. They need to take care of this ASAP!! SPREAD THE WORD!!

Stop the inhumane killing of baby birds that are in nesting in cable boxes

Recently, there has been an onslaught of killings of baby birds in the Chicago area and surrounding suburbs. Comcast workers have been witnessed finding birds inside the cable wire outlet boxes and flinging the birds nests with baby birds onto the streets, and stepping on and squashing the birds as if they are garbage. Several of these birds have been attempted to be rescued by good Samaritans, or brought into the Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation Center which is a non-for-profit rescue that relies on donations to care for the injured birds or humanly euthanize them if need be. Just today, dozens of apartment buildings in the Downtown Arlington Heights area were raided by the Comcast Technicians. Two workers were witnessed flinging an almost full grown baby bird to the ground from a high placed cable box. The bird was injured and terrified. The workers did the same to all the nests near the buildings and killed several starlings - tossing them to the ground, stepping on them and squashing these nearly full grown baby birds. The poor baby birds were only days away from being able to fly. Several residents have been rescuing the birds, by placing wooden nesting houses in the trees and relocating the surviving starlings. Unfortunately, Comcast continues to kill and hurt the birds - and only a lucky few have survived.
Comcast needs to ensure that birds cannot nest in cable wire outlet boxes that are mounted on or near apartments,condos, homes, etc. This would be done by replacing older outlet boxes with new animal proof ones. If a Comcast technician does find that birds have nested, they should use caution in removing the nests and birds if absolutely necessary, as to not harm them. They should gently place them down in a safe place near a tree or bush. They should also let the local wildlife association know their whereabouts if possible.The cable wire box should then be immediately replaced with a newer animal proof box to ensure this does not happen again. A donation should be made as well by Comcast to these Wildlife centers.
Comcast needs to find a solution to this problem and implement a corporate policy on this matter right away.
