Lead poisons 100,000 birds per year

«There is an overwhelming amount of evidence to suggest that the lead used in hunting poses a risk to humans and wildlife,» said one of the professors in charge of the study. In this regard, researchers advise that lead should be eliminated from pellets. The use of lead has been restricted across the UK since 1999, but environmentalists believe that these limitations are not working. Meanwhile, several organizations consider these conclusions are a campaign against hunting.
