A Wisconsin man is under investigation by state wildlife authorities after he filmed himself eating an endangered insect - a brilliantly-colored Karner blue, which he describes as a "stupid butterfly."
Walt Pankowitz, a former city council member in Black Falls River, posted the video to Facebook showing him chewing and swallowing the rare insect.
"They make a big deal out of them around here, and not really sure why," he says before putting the Karner blue into his mouth. Moments later, after showing his mouth was empty, Pankowitz concludes: "Really no different than any other butterfly. I don't see what the big deal is."
