Incredible, unscientific, abhorrent ...... but sadly, to be expected.

I'm drawn to this thread, but dread reading it, always hopeful of good news but never getting any, quite perverse really.

Is it bad to kill a wild bird but OK to kill a wild goat (and take triumphant photos of you and your prey)?
I just ask as I've been selling some kit and wouldn't be happy to know it was going to be used to find animals to shoot - and believe me, asking the question to a perspective buyer is well worth the effort. But then again most of our optical goodies are derived from stuff designed to help kill humans.

Too Little Malta as spring hunting is allowed to continue

What a farce

What's the problem. It will have to end fairly soon, probably just a few years from now. After all, nobody hunts Passenger Pigeons any more, now do they? </sarc>

And that's going to happen?, well done to Chris and his team for going back to Malta to highlight what's continuing to go on in that hell for birds.
