Pukeko put to the taste test

Pukeko put to the taste test

Native birds have been getting a bit of attention recently.

First we had the keruru eating incident; then we had the accidental takahe shooting incident; then we found out the hunters were supposed to be shooting pukeko.

Who knew you could shoot pukeko?

If you're a fan of native birds, get ready because it turns out you can also eat them.

Story took up the challenge.
