Hawaii to hunt sheep, goats to protect palila bird

See on Scoop.itPRG HAWAII NEWS WITH RUSS ROBERTS

HONOLULU (AP) — The state says it will hunt feral sheep and goats on the Big Island in coming weeks to protect habitat for the endangered palila songbird.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

Why not pay local hunters to do this work?  They know the area, they will use the meat to feed their families, and they don’t use expensive helicopters to cull the herds.  A bit of common sense is needed here.  If necessary, the law governing these aerial hunts should be changed.  Aloha, Russ.
