20 million birds and other animals die annually after ingesting lead left behind by hunters

In March, conservationists cried foul when new U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke overturned an Obama-administration ban on using lead ammunition or fishing tackle on federal lands. Lead is toxic to the neurological systems of animals that ingest it, killing millions each year. Though lead's poisonous effects on wildlife have been known for more than a century, eliminating it from nature continues to be an uphill battle.

Mark Pokras, V84, an associate professor emeritus of infectious disease and global health at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, conducted research on lead poisoning in loons that led to several state bans on lead fishing tackle.

Maybe a bird could pick up shotgun pellets and store it in his crop with long term damage resulting from it, but no mammal ever died from swallowing lumps of lead and pooping them out.

Who counted all the dead birds? How do they know they died of lead ingestion --- were they ALL necropsied?
Really.....this stinks. It smells of bird poop.
