The California Condor: A Real Case of Lead Poisoning

Environmental extremists have long used half-truths and questionable statistics to push for a ban of lead in fishing tackle and lead ammunition. Their ultimate objective, of course, is not to eliminate lead in the environment, but to eliminate anglers and hunters.
