Among My Trivia, I Found A Very Disturbing Item

The Audubon Society was named after John James Audubon who painted hundreds of bird pictures. His paintings were very realistic, but for a very disturbing reason, I think. He used freshly killed specimens and wired them into naturalistic poses. He said that birds lose their color quickly after they die, so he shot up to one hundred birds a day for his art. Those he had killed included eagles, owls, herons, and many other species of birds Do you think that the Audubon Society knew about this? Hmmmm.

Yes, I know they still get away with that somehow. I hate it. Especially, when the animals are endangered species. Here in the USA, deer hunting is legal during certain time periods and thousands of deer are killed. Not to mention squirrels and rabbits which many hunters kill for their dinner table. But, then think about the slaughter houses and all the beef, chicken and turkeys that are slaughtered. It's a crazy world.
