Wounded crows would suffer in hard winter

In Tuesday Jan 28, 2003 Syr Post-Standard

To the Editor,

It would be pretty awful for a bird to try to survive in this hard winter with a wounded leg or wing. But the 160 hunters in Auburn's crow-shoot tournament are sure to wound large numbers in their quest to have fun, reduce the city's crow population, and raise money for local charities.

Why consign wounded birds to a slow death? Surely there is a better solution. After all, the large flock has been cut in half already.

To relieve the city of the remaining birds, the citizens of Auburn might consult with national leaders in humane bird-conflict mitigation. That way, instead of flying away wounded the crows could just plain fly away.
