No Good Reason to Shoot Doves

A new campaigner is making the rounds in Iowa today, telling lawmakers there’s no good reason to open a dove hunting season. His name is “Dave the Dove,” and he’s the star of a one-and-a-half-minute animated video, which you can watch below.

These gentle songbirds have been protected in Iowa since 1918, but the state legislature is considering a bill, S.F. 25, to end that 90-year tradition of mourning dove protection. Dave’s video points out in a lighthearted way that doves aren’t overpopulated, don’t cause nuisance problems, don’t make a viable food source, and would be shot just for target practice.
