Crow Shooting

In the Courier Mail Saturday March 23, 2002, there is an article on page 15 which states that shooting a crow in Queensland now fetches a fine of "wait for it" $225,000 and / or two years in jail.

To be totally cynical, in this absolutely politically correct world of ours, I guess in one's defence one could say, "Well, I was just shooting at my neighbour and the crow got in the way," and then you might get off with a lesser sentence of just trying to kill a person.
