The Salina Journal Sunday, January 5,1986 Page 16 Condors being captured to preserve species LOS ANGELES (AP) - A female California condor trapped in a roundup to protect the last six of the endangered birds left in the wild had been hit with shotgun pellets and was suffering from lead poisoning, biologists say. The bird, one of the world's only remaining breeding pair, was taken Friday to the San Diego Wild Animal Park, where X-rays showed she apparently had been hit by seven shotgun pellets and had swallowed a lead fragment, officials said. "The bird's condition at the moment appears guarded," park spokesman Tom Hanscom said. "We're hoping for the best. It is in a quarantine pen right now lying on towels. We're keeping her very warm and keeping a close watch on her." The bird was given a drug to flush the toxic metal from her blood. She was caught about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles, said Jennifer Meyer, spokeswoman for the state Department of Pish and Game. Trappers usually need to lure the huge vultures with animal carcasses and then snare them on the ground in a special net launched from small cannons. But "they flushed her out and just walked up and grabbed her, "Meyer said. Earlier, National Audubon Society biologists threatened to stop helping in the hunt for the other five carrion- eating birds once the female was trapped. A final decision will not be made until early next week, when the trapping is expected to continue, society biologist Jesse Grantham said. Twenty-one other condors are being held at the San Diego Wild Animal Park and at the Los Angeles Zoo, where wildlife officials hope they will breed and can eventually be released into the wild. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, alarmed by the deaths of six of the vultures in the wild since fall 1984, has decided to catch all six condors still free in an attempt to save the nearly extinct species. The hunters combed the condors' vast range by airplane, following signals from transmitters attached to each bird during earlier attempts to keep track of them. The birds, whose wingspan reaches 9% feet, drift over the foothills and mountains at the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley, which starts about 100 miles north of Los Angeles. Federal and state officials have reluctantly concluded that all the birds must be captured. 5^$s<^;£^Xg» ^•BSfe£3@i AP An ailing female condor rests at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Britons: More TVs than toilets LONDON (AP) — Ninety-eight percent of British households have television sets, slightly more than have indoor toilets, a new government handbook says. Comparing the availability of durable goods between 1984 and 1974, the handbook said the number of households with television sets increased^ from 95 to 98 percent. The television set is slightly more widespread than indoor baths and toilets, which are found in 97 percent of households.
