Concern exists that game birds in the Province of British Columbia are contaminated with residues of chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides suck as DDT, Dieldrin and Heptachlor. This concern takes two forms: firstly that the welfare of the game bird populations may be adversely affected and secondly that the birds may be unfit to eat. This report presents the results of pesticide analyses that were conducted on 144 game bird specimens.
