There are a couple of shows on "Animal Planet" on pay TV where volunteers
are rescuing water birds that have been shot and or disturbed by the
commotion of IRRESPONSIBLE bird shooters. Many of the ducks rescued had
broken wings or beaks and were just left to die. Some of the ducks found
were a protected breed. Many of the ducks and one Black Swan were bought in
suffering from stress/shock and not having any physical injuries. Thank
goodness after a feed of vitamins and a warm and quite bed the Swan and may
of the injured ducks survived. Many dead and wounded birds were picked up
after the shooters left just leaving unwanted birds in the wetland. Then
there is the damage to the wetland from the stomping around and the lead
from the shot, but that is another chapter.

Rather than just poking the finger at the children or the dogs, it is the
human race as a whole that causes such havoc to wildlife.

I have seen humans from all ages disturbing wildlife, the most damaging
though are those in industry who do not only disturb our fauna but destroy
their habitat & homes creating structures which cover & destroy large areas
of precious ecosystems.
