Minnesota Hunting Sandhill Crane- A Protected Species

  • by: Animal Advocates
  • recipient: Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
 

The Sandhill Crane hunting season in Minnesota is scheduled for the 4th of September through October 10th even though they have a protected status in Minnesota, and many other states.


Audubon Minnesota and the Minnesota Conservation Federation say the DNR bypassed its usual public input process.


Audubon's Don Arnosti says the DNR seems to be trying to avoid controversy.

"We're appalled at the unilateral actions of the commissioner to take a species that has been in protected status for a century in this state, and in the middle of the summer, with no public hearings, just announce that there will be basically an over-the-counter sale of these birds for anybody who wants to take them," he said.

Please sign petition and contact them to tell them what you think.
