There are plenty of things that are naturally found in the wild that aren't all that great for wildlife and the planet. Oil, Methane, Mercury, etc...
That is precisely my point. Plenty of things harm animals in the wild, a lot more than lead does. The fact that they are going after lead makes their agenda of "environmentalism" mildly suspicious. I feel that if it was their end goal that their resources would be better spent advocating for tougher littering penalties, forest clean ups, or the use of lead-free alternatives (instead of an outright ban because it produces the suspicious reactions that they are getting). I'll admit that the lead from shot harms animals. My point is that there are tons of other things that also do. Their efforts would be better spent targeting (pun intended) those things.
