Season finally ends
THE Queen's Birthday holiday signals the end of another duck hunting season. 
While there have been fewer ducks on Victorian wetlands this year, rescuers 
have seen all the usual bad behaviour by hunters: firing into flocks; birds 
shot but not collected; birds collected but not killed quickly and humanely; 
and protected species illegally shot.As for rescuers, five were this week 
largely cleared of charges arising from last year's closing weekend. This 
farcical trial cost thousands of dollars and seven days of the court's 
time.Letter to The Saturday Age. The court cases referred to were reported by 
ABC radio. Files attached.
