The Illinois Ag Dept.  illegally seized privately owned bees from renowned naturalist, Terrence Ingram, without providing him with a search warrant and before the court hearing on the matter, reports Prairie Advocate News.

Behind the obvious violations of his Constitutional rights is Monsanto. Ingram was researching Roundup’s effects on bees, which he’s raised for 58 years.  “They ruined 15 years of my research,” he told Prairie Advocate, by stealing most of his stock.

Illinois illegally seizes Bees Resistant to Monsanto’s Roundup; Kills remaining Queens

A certified letter from the Ag Dept.’s Apiary Inspection Supervisor, Steven D. Chard, stated:

 

“During a routine inspection of your honeybee colonies by … Inspectors Susan Kivikko and Eleanor Balson on October 23, 2011, the bacterial disease ‘American Foulbrood’ was detected in a number of colonies located behind your house…. Presence of the disease in some of your colonies was confirmed via test results from the USDA Bee Research Laboratory in Beltsville, Maryland that analyzed samples collected from your apiary….”

Ingram can prove his bees did not have foulbrood, and planned to do so at a hearing set in April, but the state seized his bees at the end of March.

They have not returned them and no one at the Ag Dept. seems to know where his bees are.

 

 

 

The bees could have been destroyed, or they could have been turned over to Monsanto to ascertain why some of his bees are resistant to Roundup. Without the bees as evidence, Ingram simply cannot defend against the phony charges of foulbrood.

Worse, all his queens died after Kivikko and Balson “inspected” his property, outside of his presence and without a warrant.

Of note, Illinois beekeepers are going underground after Ingram’s experience and refuse to register their hives, in case the state tries to steal their private property on phony claims.

The little town of Apple River in northeast Jo Daviess County, Illinois is the hometown of a big man – Terrence Ingram.

Though not big in a physical sense, when it comes to saving the American Bald Eagle, there is hardly anyone in the United States held in higher regard than Ingram.

His years of documented research and expertise regarding eagles and the work of the Eagle Nature Foundation, founded by Ingram, is in great part responsible for the bald eagle being removed from the “Threatened Species List ” in the United States.
Unfortunately, it was not his knowledge of eagles that the Illinois Department of Agriculture sought when they paid an unannounced visit to his home in March.

It was his bees.  March 21, 2012 Ingram  reported the theft of $5000 worth of his bees and bee hives.

Ingram said that before they  had left for their granddaughter’s wedding in Texas, the hives had been cleaned and made ready for new spring swarms.

Terry Ingram believes his bees were recently confiscated by the Illinois Department of Agriculture because he was developing a glyphosate resistant bee. This confiscation destroys years of his research.
