Posted in: Japan detects season's first bird flu case; to cull 40,000 birds: NHK See in context

what happens to all those culled birds ?

Not only the birds, but everything that goes with them, including the waste. Since that other stuff gets composted, doing the same with the carcasses is a viable option.

I didn't like the guy in the only movie I have seen him act. I thought the movie would have been better without the character he played. Now I know it was him, not the character.

Mixed feelings about it. I don't want capital punishment, but I am also concerned about what is forgivable to this court. Because much lessor crime will still be the death penalty.
