This is a shame. Who wants to see the California Condor population die out because of lead bullets? I recently worked with the Ventana Wildlife Society and learned of the plight of these birds. The birds are scavengers that eat dead carcasses. Much of their diet is from animals shot with lead bullets... once that lead enters the condor's digestive system it can kill them.
How can anyone defend using lead bullets any longer? These birds were decimated by humans over the years, nearly to the point of extinction. Now, there are dedicated individuals who are bringing the population back one bird at a time. Hunters, show some compassion and respect for the wilderness ecosystem. It is inhumane to continue to let these birds suffer and die from lead poisoning.
