    Shouldn't this be under Controversial Animal Topics in Around the Neighborhood.

    you know, I thought about that and don't care if it's moved.
    but I decided there was no way this could be controversial - it's bad. period.

    Very sad. Why did they let him go and keep his birds after paying a fine? He's obviously got money. Dirty money. He should have went to jail so he can't do it again :crycry2:

    I'm sure the parents of the eggs were happy about this, and just moved to the side to let their eggs be stolen. I have no doubt they were either harmed, killed or trafficked themselves. Not only is it cruel but so short sighted as well. You would think that even if they don't care about the birds, they would realize that there's only a few left and they need a wild population to supply their egg smuggling. But I'm sure it's a 'take as many as you can' scenario.
