'Severe fires sometimes surround and destroy grown animals and birds and kill them outright; but the greatest damage occurs through the destruction of eggs and young, and the ruin of coverts, without which game falls an easy prey to vermin and hunters. Fire also important disturbances among the food plants on which the game is dependent.'
