The owner of Chris Rhea wonders why she was shot by a gamekeeper. The gamekeeper's reason for doing this is apparently not that he had the opportunity to shoot a giant bird so why not, but rather that it was a danger to traffic.
Yes I can see that a 6 foot bird wandering the roads could be a problem to traffic. But so can deer. I didn't notice in the article that the gamekeeper was planning to lay waste the entire deer population of North Hertfordshire.
