Hunting Sand Hill Cranes Wrong

Dear Editor:

     The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is proposing hunting Sandhill Cranes in the 2011-2012 hunting season.  Sandhill Cranes are gray birds with white cheeks and red on the top of their heads.  They stand 5 feet tall with a wing span of 6-7 feet.  Their gurgling "groo" call is one of the most memorable in nature.  They have slowly returned after having been hunted almost to extinction in the early 1900s.  They mate for life and have a low reproduction rate with a nesting pair averaging one surviving chick every three years.  When a mate is killed, the other mate shows signs of obvious distress.

     These migrating cranes have not been hunted in Kentucky for more than 90 years.  This "first ever" hunting season proposing selling 400 permits (killing of 2 cranes per permit) is being hastily planned for 2011.
