Fed plan would allow non-native birds to be killed

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Wildlife officials have proposed rules that will allow state and federal agencies to kill cattle egrets and barn owls.

Hawaii News Now reports the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has published proposed rules that would allow the birds to be euthanized.

Both are introduced species to Hawaii, and encroach on native birds. Barn owls will eat native newborn Pueo, while cattle egrets dominate habitats populated by endangered Ae'o and Hawaiian stilts.

Public comments on the plan will be accepted until Feb. 3.
