From The Monterey County Herald:

_A bill that will outlaw use of bullets containing lead for big game and varmint hunting in California’s condor range is on its way to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s desk for signing. . . .

The range defined in the bill was based on data provided by the Ventana Wildlife Society, which has been releasing condors in Big Sur since 1997, said the society’s executive director, Kelly Sorenson. . . .

One proposal had been to simply declare identified deer ranges as condor range, Sorenson said, but that would include wide areas where no condors fly.

“We wanted to show the community that we are not overzealous,” he said. “We would like to see that, in the actual condor range, that hunters use nonlead bullets. We thought it was a pretty reasonable and appropriate way to go.”_

Do you think it’s reasonable and appropriate?
