Stillaguamish Tribe opposes ban on hunting

The Stillaguamish Tribe, conservationists and hunters spoke out against a proposed ban on hunting on Leque Island in Washington.

A local resident submitted a petition to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife but everyone opposed it at a public meeting. Shawn Yanity, chairman of the tribe, said the tribe has hunted on the island for thousands of years.

The Audubon Society and hunters also criticized the petition.
