If he had used an AR-15 ASSAULT RIFLE, it would have had better coverage.

I'm glad the bird is still alive. Hope he doesn't suffer any PSTD.

Jason Galvin used a .22-caliber rifle to fire 150 shots at the rope and branches surrounding the feathered creature — America’s national bird — after spotting it dangling upside down close to his family’s cabin near Rush City, Minnesota, on Thursday.
150 shots? Tuco would've been long dead!

I wonder if he inadvertently broke any laws by doing this.

Reminds me of the fisherman in New England who cut loose a whale trapped in his fishing net. Feds nailed him for $500 because he didn't call the proper authorities to do it.
