    IMHO, if its not a human, its not a big deal. Here come the PETA people.

    He killed a bird with a golf shot, on purpose?!?!?

    Ditto that, I've killed a lot of birds with my bb gun and 22 rifle growing up for a heck of a lot less reason then his. How many state dollars are they wasting to convict a guy of killing a damn bird. What a joke....

    this is my point, Im not saying that killing animals is our god given right...I am saying he hit it with a golf shot. We eat animals that are tortured, he killed it in one shot. I am saying this is over blown. People hunt all the time, its bad becasue this was an "endangered/protected species" that does nothing and we wouldnt notice if it died out.

    -Focker out.

    Dogs and cats dont count as animals in my context here, they are waayyy to domesticated.

    Re: Golfer charged with killing protected bird on purpose

    The point is (which as per usual escapes so many) he intentionally shot at a protected species.

    This wasn't his second shot on hole 4, par 5. It wasn't a Robe Lowe-esque freak accident.

    Did he mean to kill it? Probably not. But then again, why take shots at it? Stupidity and/or ignorance is not a defense.

    I thought the same thing, If I had the control to take out a bald eagle with a golf ball at 200 yards I think I'd have to do it, just to say I could.
