WATCH: Guy Gets Paid to Shoot at Birds All Day in Order to Save Them. Here’s Why….

Somewhere in remote Montana, right now, there’s a guy getting paid to shoot an assault rifle at any bird that lands on his pond. In order to save their lives…

He’s a hero. In order to understand why, you need to know about the Berkeley Copper Mine.

 

The Most Dangerous Water in North America?

The Berkeley Pit is a former copper mine in the western United States, located in Butte, Montana.

Today it’s full of water. Deadly water…

With water that is heavily acidic (2.5 pH level), about the acidity of Coca-Cola, lemon juice, or gastric acid. As a result, the pit is full of heavy metals and dangerous chemicals that leach from the rock, including copper, arseniccadmiumzinc, and sulfuric acid.

It’s a cocktail of death, especially for un-expecting waterfowl.

The levels of copper are high enough in the water table that Montana Resources has mined copper directly from the water itself!

 

But the Berkley Pit is a Graveyard for Waterfowl…

In 1995, a flock of migrating geese landed in the Berkeley Pit and died. A total of 342 carcasses were recovered.

After inspecting the corpses, scientists discovered their insides were lined with burns and festering sores from exposure to high concentrations of copper, cadmium, and arsenic.

The water burned them alive…

On November 28, 2016, several thousand snow geese died after a large flock landed in the pit’s water to avoid a snowstorm. Immediately after the event, officials made efforts to scare birds away and prevent more from landing in the area.

Now, in order to protect any waterfowl from dying a very painful death, this man gets paid to protect them. By shooting at them…

Don’t worry, he doesn’t hurt them, he only scares them away for their own protection. Crazy job…
