Lead Ban Chronicles – Golden Eagles And Lead Video

March 20, 2015

Lead Ban ChroncilesI’ve debated how to present this, and I decided the best thing to do is just put it up here without my input for now.  Some of you who’ve been sort of following my discussions on this topic probably have an idea of what I think, but for the moment, I’m curious about what you think after watching this short video

Doesn’t matter if you agree with it or if you find fault, if you learned something or not, I’m really curious to get some other takes besides my own.  I will say that I had to allay my initial knee jerk reaction and pay attention to what the guy is actually saying.  I think that is the most productive approach.

So view on, and respond if you can spare a moment.

    I watched the video. And I do agree that birds of prey ‘can’ ingest led from hunter shot game.

    What never seems to be addressed in any of these studies is the amount of hunter shot game that the animal is ingesting.

    There is no doubt that lead is highly toxic and there is no doubt that, as a conservation group, hunters can do their part by taking lead out of the equation but, I just have a hard time believing that so many birds are being infected solely by hunters’ bullets.

    I am encouraged that this group is looking to expand its sample size and variables in a better effort to understand what is happening but when you see these videos targeted at the hunting community it makes you wonder if their mind is already made up.

    David, I’m with you. I’d like to see more, continued research. Right now, nothing points to any real threat to any birds that aren’t already threatened (condors), and in the case of condors, voluntary actions are working better than legislation. That says so much more than any of the public organizations (on either side) really want to focus on, because it challenges all of the politically motivated narratives.
