White Storks and some calous barbarians on Malta.

I have just received this e-mail from FocusingonWildlife.com if true it's a sad indictment on the thugs and the authorities of Malta.

The largest flock of White Storks ever recorded in Malta has been shot at from several different locations, as the birds sought overnight shelter in Malta. At least six of the 200-strong flock of storks were seen to be shot down, while another injured stork was recovered but had to be euthanized by a vet. Another two injured storks were recorded in flight with dangling legs and missing feathers.

People used to think bear baiting, fox hunting, and many other cruel sports justifiable. The authorities on Malta must enforce the law or expect condemnation from all civilised people.

How can people kill anything without a good reason. There is a lot more skill in getting a good shot with a camera and you get to keep and share the results. Nothing need die.

With every shot the world is a poorer place.
