Backwoods Aussie hillbilly white trash poachers too ignorant to NOT eat lead pellets. The whole family had high levels because they were too illiterate and uneducated to know better than eat lead shot. But, apparently not too ignorant to understand how to procreate.

That pretty much covers it. Some humans should not be allowed to breed.

Yep, i grew up in an era where all we had was lead shot for shotguns. All the damn paint contained lead, gasoline was loaded with tetraethyl lead: Hell, the toothpaste tubes were even made of lead. Our parents taught us that swallowing lead pellets or bullets, gnawing the paint off the walls, drinking gasoline and eating toothpaste tubes were verboten.

Yep I can't say I understand this at all, when we were little we hunted with lead pellet and lead bullets but we knew to get every piece out possible and not to eat the meat around the bullet or wound channel. We always washed out hands after dealing with lead (which was a lot because we use to make our own weights for pine wood durby) we treated lead like it was arsenic still do.

I just don't see why in the hell kids would eat them as a game, or why they wouldn't pick out shot, it hurts my teeth when you find shot in my food which is rare but happens every blue moon.

Yup, I was highly exposed to all of those and more most of my childhood, prolly could have been a brain surgeon if I hadnt been lead headed as a kid! Mom always had a big ol can of DDT kicking around if their wasnt any lead to chew on. I was one of those kids that bit the split shot onto my fishing line, never thought twice about it; really, what kid carried pliers? I had a jackknife, lighter, smokes, a small creel and holes in my jeans, no place for tools!

But not you? Dang! Child abuse/neglect not tellng you too. You should sue. Maybe the homeowner's insurance y'all had from then will have to pay off. You certainly seem to have sufferred irreparable harm and mental anguish

I think this family needs to win the Darwin Award!!

You can't tell me the whole family was not that smart to spit out the pellets. Or pick them out while you are cleaning the dam birds.
