This incident that Debbie Lustig mentioned a few weeks ago has finally made the 

"The shooters ‘‘ shot the shit out of ... everything that moved.’’

The slaughter embarrassed even the most hard-headed of hunters. More than 800 
abandoned duck carcasses that shooters did not bother to pick up. At least 150 
endangered ducks killed, many among Australia’s rarest. And other dead birds – 
hawk-like whistling kites and black swans– that look nothing like ducks. "
