Best quote from report:
"Thirty years ago, I used to shoot 500-700 sparrows a day with my sling shot," says Haji Shakoor, 57, from Salang valley. "The sky used to be full of birds. But now it seems so empty."
I wonder why.....?
The locals have no knowledge about sustainable hunting. What on earth did he do with 500 plus Sparrows a day? How can any one shoot a Sparrow without feeling guilty?
Hunting in this part of the world is excessive at its best. The 1979 Soviet invasion and the flood of weapons to defeat them has destroyed the fabric of Pakistan and Afghanistan.
