Aerial Hunting
This undated photo provided by environmental law firm Earthjustice shows the endangered palila bird, a native bird found only in certain parts of Hawaii’s Mauna Kea. A federal court ruling on April 8, 2013 allows the state to continue aerial hunting of feral sheep and goats in an effort to protect the forest where the birds live. A Hawaii County ordinance bans aerial hunting, but the state must still comply with a previous order to eradicate the animals for the bird’s survival. (AP Photo/Earthjustice, Jack Jeffrey)
