    Students mistakenly sprayed during gyspy moth treatment

    SILVERDALE — An airplane sprayed organic pesticide over students at Cougar Valley Elementary School on Tuesday morning while treating an area on the west side of Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor for invasive gypsy moths.

    ...

    Lauren Smith, who has a farm west of the base, posted a Facebook videos showing what she described to be "chemical clouds" drifting onto her property and panicked farm animals. Smith said her animals were "screaming" and showed signs of blindness due to the spray.

    It is sickening and enfuriating to watch those goats suffer and think of school children being sprayed! I saw on Facebook that other local residents had cats and horses injured. There is no reason to spray children or farm animans to control gyspy moth. There are more conservative methods to treat trees in residential and farm areas. I hope humane organizations investigate this as animal cruelty and children's rights groups will stop this from happeing to chidren in the future.
