The enviro-whackos should be careful, after all they are interfering with lord Darwin's plan for life, natural selection based on the strength of the species. Lord Darwin might send down thunder to strike the interloper that shoots his superior owl species. Human interferance is also inconsistent with the greenie's belief that humans are just one of a number of species, no better, no worse. Who are we to favor one species over another? It's not like we were given Dominion over the world.
