Lead Bullets Still a Major Threat for US Birds

Lead bullet fragments in dead game can be lethal to one of the most important birds in the American food chain: the condor. And especially the California Condor. The California condor is still in big danger. Lead can poison the carcass of the condor's food, and when the condor  eats it, it faces the same fate as its food. The use of lead bullets should be stopped. And even better, if hunting stopped all together, many important animals in our ecosystem can be saved. If we don't stop using lead ammunition, many animals will suffer the same fate as the California Condor
