Birds, Hunters, and Lead
NOVEMBER 5, 2012
In what some might see as an unlikely alliance, wildlife rehabilitators, veterinarians, and – yes – hunters have banded together to convince those who hunt to use copper bullets instead of lead.

This is not protecting hunters’ rights; this is taking away a law that protects the health of both hunters and wildlife.
