Probe launched to discover who poised 8 griffon vultures on the Golan

The 8 griffon vultures, almost half of the Golan population of this rare, protected species, were found dead of poison on the Golan on Friday. Israel’s Nature and Parks Authority director Shaul Goldstein said their deaths were a mortal blow to Israel’s birds of prey population, which is protected by strict anti-hunting laws. He said everything possible would be done to find those responsible. Suspicion in past instances has fallen on local farmers who may plant poison against the jackals and hyenas which prey on their herds.

    Democracy is the worst way to run a country, except for all other forms of organization already experimented.

    Can’t have youngsters growing up, appear out of nowhere a significant percentage, and and modifying the social contract!

    The correct word to use is “poisoned” not “poised”.
