In response to The History Channelâ€™s new series â€œAmerican Jungle,â€ the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), as well as representatives of hunting, animal protection and film agencies in Hawaii, find the seriesâ€™ depiction of hunting activities on the Island of Hawaii to be inaccurate, offensive, and in some cases, potentially illegal.
The DLNR Division of Conservation Resource Enforcement (DOCARE) is currently conducting an investigation into whether several of DLNRâ€™s rules and regulations may have been broken during the filming of the program. Activities such as night hunting both on public and private land, are illegal under Hawaii Revised Statues Â§183D-27 and Hawaii Administrative Rules Â§13-123-6. The Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW), which oversees DLNRâ€™s hunting program, denied a permit request last spring for the production to film on state forest lands.Read more
