Deer hunters should pay extra and buy lead-free ammo.

Deer hunters should pay extra and buy lead-free ammo.  Many eagles die a terrible slow death each year from lead ammo.  They are scavengers and eat the entrails from gutted deer.  They experience seizures and blindness.  Then slowly starve to death because they can’t fly or stand.  They are often hit by cars.  Last year the raptor center at the U of M had 100 plus lead-poisoned bald eagles admitted to the clinic.  Save our American icon!
