Extinct Bird Found Before Being Eaten

Critter News

A rare quail from the Philippines was photographed for the first time before being sold as food at a poultry market, experts say.

A precious thing, possibly the last of its kind, enjoyed for a few minutes by a human being, then destroyed by another.

Last week, representatives of some 50 countries attended the third meeting of the International Cooperation on Migratory Sharks (SHARKS III) hosted by the Philippines in Manila. The participants also agreed to advance the protection of seven shark species that needed protection—the Basking Shark, Great White Shark, Whale Shark, Spiny Dogfish Shark, Porbeagle Shark, and Shortfin and Longfin Mako Sharks. The shark's fins had been cut and he was still alive when found, but sadly died.
