A lead fragment the size of a rice grain contains enough lead to kill an eagle. Most lead bullets leave dozens of such fragments in a gut pile that eagles and other wildlife accidentally consume.

Lead poisoning is a leading cause of mortality in eagles and studies have shown that lead concentrations in raptors spike during and directly after hunting seasons (1,2).
