Where are all the dead coyotes and other scavengers dying from lead? Bears that eat gut piles? Lead ban was a political decision as part of the incremental war on guns (here's a way to discourage gun ownership, let's make shooting more expensive!) and to lesser extent hunting. I would really like to know how many lead bullets actually remained in gut piles (all the deer I shot it was pass through except one that was lodged in hide after hitting a bone), and as to those that did, how many remained after the bears and coyotes got to it before the condors got their share. If you think about it, it is quite a fantastical claim that condors were getting poisoned by hunters.
