Untold numbers of migratory birds are being caught and killed every year in Afghanistan, helping drive species like the Siberian Crane to the verge of extinction. Hunters say other bird populations are also declining rapidly, raising fears among environmentalists.

We need a plague.......

How come Countries such as the USA, Canada, and most of Europe, and the UK are not like this?.....Yes, there are some poachers, but nothing like these dumb asses in third world Countries, China, and Japan....And that Island off of Norway that kill Whales.....

Maybe they are that stupid, maybe that is why they live they way they do. Do they have any hunting laws in those places?...If so, are they enforced?

It does not matter......
