A gamekeeper in Oregon arrested a man for killing and eating an Egret.
He pleaded guilty explaining to the judge, “I was just trying to feed my hungry family. I’ve never done anything like that before.”
The judge freed him out of compassion. After all he was feeding his starving family and it was a first offence.
“Before you go I want to ask you a question. What does Egret taste like?”
“Well your Honour, it’s not as tender as Spotted Owl but its better than Bald Eagle.”
