And cripes, why does the cat need a bird?! The dude has enough money for a gun. Seems like he should have enough money for cat food. That bird was not for his cat.

    I don't care what you're used to or how you feel towards birds, what he did was cruel and unnecessary.
    I will agree with that one too. First of all, you shouldn't be shooting in city limits. That's endangering many people. It is also cruel and unnecessary. Why would you do this when someone is watching anyway.....

    I would venture a guess that his cat would be just fine with cat food. Some people don't seem to ever look at animals as having a life, or a spirit. How do you value one animal's life over another?

    What I dont get is, why did he shooot the bird when he has enough money for cat food?
    I want to share something with you all.
    This poem is called the rhime of the ancient mariner.

    Rhime of the Ancient Mariner
    by
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    An ancient seaman meets three fellows on their way to a
    wedding feast, and delays one of them to tell his intriguing
    story. He explains how his ship, blown off course by a violent storm, ended up heading towards the south pole. Then the vessel is surrounded by ice, an albatross appears and is greeted joyfully by the crew as a good omen. The ice splits and the bird accompanies the ship untill the seaman inexplicably shoots it. For this act of pointless cruelty, the ship is cursed and she is driven north to the equator and becalmed under the blazing sun and the rotting sea. As the bird begins to rot, a skeleton ship approaches, crewed by Death and Life-in-Death; the grisly pair are playing dice, and when the vessel dissapears all the crew die, leaving the seaman as the sole survivor.As a punishment, the albatross
    is hung around the seamans neck.For seven days and nights
    the seaman is cursed by the stares of the deceased untill suddenly,while watching the beuaty of the water snakes in the moonlight, he blesses them, and the albatross falls from his neck. Miraculasly, the dead crew are resurrected and the ship sails home. When it is within sight of land, it suddenly sinks, taking the bodies of the dead crew with it. The seaman is saved, but as a punishment he is condemmed to travel from land to land continually retteling his poignant story, so that others may show love and respect for all Gods creatures.

    Must I say more?

    The poem above is similar to what I witnessed.
    A bird gets shot for food.(that fact gets found out later)

    It ok. Magpies are mostly abundant in the west.

    Yellow billed is also a full species, but in my veiw, it should be a subspecies.
    that makes no logic

    Although I guess I could understand shooting something for pure hatred of it. I hate squirells with a burning passion for every possible reason. If I had a BB gun, I'd shoot them every chance I had if they were in the back yard.

    But I don't see what a magpie could do that could give someone enough hatred to randomely shoot it.
