Officials: California man shot 130 hawks, birds of prey

A Northern California man shot more than 130 hawks and other legally protected birds of prey on his land, leaving the carcasses to pile up at the foot of trees and telephone poles, wildlife officials said Wednesday.

California Department of Fish and Wildlife managers believe the discovery near the rural town of Standish in Lassen County, on the border with Nevada, marks the largest poaching case involving raptors on record for the state, spokesman Capt. Patrick Foy said.

Wildlife officers alerted by an anonymous tip from someone who reported watching a man shooting down a hawk "just started finding one bird after the next," Foy said.

Wildlife officers don't know what motivated the shootings, he said.

2. This is horrifying.

Probably some disgruntled person who's angry with the birds for whatever reason.

Throw the book at him!

4. A mental health evaluation should disarm him. There is no sane reason for killing that many birds (unless you lived in Bodega Bay in the early '60's).

That's still law here in CA , right ?
