So why shoot the men? aren't they endangered too?
Violence begets violence.

It's a bird. Endangered or not, it's just a conservation violation. Rarely ever a need to crowd already overcrowded jails/prisons with people for poaching/hunting violations.

It isn't just a 'conservation violation'. It's also a threat to the future.
So if some people think it's ok to ignore laws and moral duty that's one thing. What bothers me is that these firearm totin, half brained weenies who think they can use any living creature for target practice are running around without supervision.
Who's the next target?

So according to you, they should imprison a guy for shooting 3 deer when he only had tags for 2.
Go kill yourself.

I agree with Dan. I think some of you need to be shot just so you will stop advising violence as an answer.Jail for shooting a bird? How about having to work for DNR instead. Clearly the Judge didn't think it was worth jail time. I for one don't want my money going to house someone for shooting a stupid bird.

If people had taken this attitude towards eagles, although now they are off the endangered species list. More importantly though the many critically endangered animals. They would be gone. Once a species is gone, it is gone forever. So yes they deserved it and more.

Yes they deserved to be punished. But the first poster wanted them shot. Did they deserve that?

Our wildlife laws are extremely lenient and need to be beefed up.
