Delaware Eyes Changes To Wildlife Regulations

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - State environmental officials are taking public comment on proposed revisions to Delaware's wildlife regulations.
 
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control planned to hold a public hearing Wednesday night in Dover on the proposed revisions.
 
One change officials are looking at allows children under age 13 to hunt wild turkeys without passing an approved hunting course as long as they are accompanied by a trained adult.
 
Another change involves regulations governing the sport of falconry and the taking of birds of prey.
 
Other changes would add the Easter mud salamander, the red knot, the American kestrel and the broad-winged hawk to the list of endangered species in Delaware while delisting other species, including the bald eagle, Cooper's hawk and red-headed woodpecker.
