Domino Sparrow Killer Fined

The Dutch government has fined the killer of the Domino-Day sparrow EUR 200. According to Dutch law, the shooter violated the “Flora and Fauna” Act because the bird was a protected species.

Meanwhile, news agency NOS today reported that the body of the sparrow will be displayed in the Nature Museum in Rotterdam. A source from the museum said, “It is an animal with a story and therefore our museum gladly takes (the sparrow).” The bird will be part of an exhibit on sparrows which will go on display at the end of 2006.
