    Who is putting them on a Disney level? Nobody. It's an endangered species, what part of that can't you comprehend? He did $188K in damage, consider the $85K fine as restitution. He already got off for over $100K less than the damage he did.

    some people just don’t care at all that it’s an endangered species. Kinda hard to understand

    It’s really pathetic how many “duck hunters” on this forum have zero concern for conservation of endangered species and lack of appreciation for an iconic species like a Whopping Crane. You would think all duck hunters would be outraged by what this guy did. He absolutely deserved the punishment he got.
    And apparently if you give a damn about the environment and the animals that live in it makes you a stupid liberal???

    Newsflash:Our duck hunting depends on a healthy environment.

    I disagree that public perception is all hunters are poachers. That is how animal rights activists perceive us. But not the general public

    Pretty sure I can find a news story or two where they refer to a poacher as a hunter...

    No, it's more likely the asinine belief a few of you have that if you think the sentence was too harsh then you don't give a damn at all.

    I just want to know how they figured up that it cost that much to raise and release a bird.

    It probably cost less than $1000 per bird. The rest is government oversight overhead.

    I’m pretty sure they factor in the people that monitor the chicks as they’re being raised and the price of the ultra light flights used to help them learn migration routes.
