WAUPACA, WI -- A hunter shot what he thought was an albino
There is no such thing. The hunter had in fact shot a whooping
crane, which was found dead in a wheat field. Warden Dremel says the
hunter was remorseful and realized afterwards he had made a mistake.
The hunter was sentenced for violating the Migratory Bird
Treaty Act. He was sentenced to pay a $500 fine and $1,500 in
restitution to the International Crane Foundation. His hunting and
fishing rights also were revoked nationwide for two years.
