As bad as birders think photographers are and photographers think birders are neither is as bad as the jerk who took a pot shot at a Snowy Owl in Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area, near Great Bend, Kansas. The bird was brought in to a veterinarian but it was too late and the owl died.

Such a shame. I hope the poachers are punished rather that given a slap on the wrist.
It would be interesting (but impossible) to know how many are shot in total this winter; I suspect that the number is high.
So very sad. What is it with the HUMAN race? It contains the HUMANE! Pushing our own selves to extinction.
