Californian condor

Its mainly just a great photo. There are only 300 left in the wild. A number recently died after feeding on the carcasses of animals that had been shot using lead bullets. The Californian senate has responded by banning the use of lead bullets in hunting. Good.

Another thing banned, another small piece of happiness for Harry Clarke.

Your wife should give you news stories about things getting banned before you go to bed to ensure you get a nice stiffy.

Banning lead bullets allows condors to live. Yes I am happy.

You and your mates can still go out and take pleasure from killing animals - no-one stopping that yet - you just cannot use lead bullets that pollute the environment and kill non-targeted species.

My end holding up quite well thank you.

I don't even like hunting. I just like regulation even less.

You are addicted to it though.

Isn't it about time you grew out of this teenage "rulz suk" mentality?

ps. I enjoy shooting pesky critters like rabbits.

Eh. Killing stuff is fun but I'd rather stay indoors. That's why I play WoW instead.

Sam, I still don't understand how seeking to prevent hunters from poisoning the environment detracts from freedom.

Biodiversity is a public good that people value. Killing it indiscriminately infringes the property rights of all those who value it.
