I'm curious as to whether he KNEW and INTENTIONALLY violated the law. What he was doing would be legal if the particular birds he was shooting were not on the endangered species list. I can easily see where someone is not aware. It cost him his boat and his camera(???) and $9k - that seems stiff unless he knowingly did it.

Per the article: In lieu of turning over his boat motor and camera, Neiger has also agreed to pay $9,000 in fines.
So he agreed to plead guilty to one count and pay $9K in fines.

As for the guy knowing and intentionally violating the law... Maybe maybe not. However, he was observed eight times and runs a business/school teaching others, so you would think he'd research what he could do/what is allowed... Just my 2cents.

Picturing Hnger in America
Originally posted by Linked Story:

Hunger Through My Lens” has a dual mission: to empower people who are living in poverty and to promote awareness about hunger issues. Sponsored by the non-profit group Hunger Free Colorado, the program gives digital cameras to food stamp recipients and asks them to chronicle what it’s like to be hungry in America.

So far, 15 women — who come from all walks of life — have participated in the pilot program. Over the months, they’ve formed a “sisterhood” of sorts, supporting and encouraging one another. One woman is a former paralegal who suffers from autism. One is a family practice physician. A third woman is HIV-positive and has struggled with chronic homelessness. A fourth just got off government assistance and is now an executive director of a local non-profit organization.

In some instances "Knowledge and Intent" have no bearing on the matter at hand since some offences are "Strict Liability" offences. In scenarios such at those, the issue of "Mens Rea" is not considered.

Translated into plain English "You did it, you got caught doing it, you are guilty". One might get a reduced fine if your plea of ignorance is heard by a sympathetic judge.

in other words, ignorance is no defense ;-)

i agree with tangy, the guy's an idiot. he needs to be paying wendy for lessons in the art of patience instead of running with the attitude of sitting around for 10-15 minutes and saying, "screw this, i ain't waiting for them to fly. i'll just ram the bush their in with my boat! that'll get 'em up..."

he might as well be using the junior dew duck call...(click the image to watch)

Two interviews:

KQED Forum

Originally posted by Program Summary:

Lynsey Addario is no stranger to war. The MacArthur Award-winning photographer has covered conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, embedding herself with soldiers and capturing rare pictures of warlords and civilians caught in the crossfire. She has also survived two kidnappings and a horrific car accident overseas. In her new memoir, "It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life of Love and War," she takes a candid look at her nomadic life and her struggle to find love and motherhood while pursuing a dangerous career.

Anyone else find this super predictable given the fact that only a few years ago many veteran photojournalists were dismissed from their jobs?
