The killing of Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe last year by a Minnesota dentist brought a lot of attention to the idea of trophy hunting. Washington is the only state that bans some hunters from bringing their trophies into the country. Now four other states are considering similar bills -- among them, New York and Connecticut.


New York's Department of Environmental Conservation issued a draft wildlife management proposal Thursday that calls for reducing the number of "mute swans" in the state.
