And of course we should not forget that they said the same thing of the only other species of dove native to Ontario, at the time the most common of all our birds, the Passenger Pigeon. Even so, they don’t make that argument any more about it, since it has been extinct for 99 years. The last one known and documented, named Martha, died in a Cincinnati Zoo in 1914. But the Passenger Pigeon lived in a time when we didn’t know better, and when cruel practices against people and animals abounded. Do we not progress?
