Morning all, I have an unpleasant query to discuss.
I understand ( but do not condone) the occasional issuing of permits to cull bird species allegedly causing economic hardship to agriculturalists.
However, it has recently come to my notice that late last year (2002) there was an instance in South Australia in which an uncommon ( rare for the location at which the incident took place) bird was shot and collected for the SA Museum.  The incident has been published in the SA Ornithologist, so names, location, and bird species are already in the public domain.
