Why I Broke One of My 'Cardinal' Rules

I first heard about this story at our good friend's Birdfreak Birding Blog. It seems Walda Cameron grew irritated at a male northern cardinal, or Cardinalis cardinalis, for fluttering outside a window of her home. She sought out a gun store, bought a shotgun, got instructions, and after several attempts she blew the protected bird to bloody smithereens. She says she later regretted having done it, but not so much so that she didn't dress up, put her makeup on, and proudly display her weapon for a Newsweek story.
Your reaction?
