3:46 am
if they operate outside of the law it undermines the purpose of having a professional guide organization in the state of alaska. >> michael renfro was one of the guides on the hunt with veil and has also been charged. >> if i could do it over again, i would do it differently. there was no personal gain to myself or my business. the only gain was hopefully theresa wouldn't lose her career. >> the outdoor channel says the hunt in question never aired and that they are committed to ethical hunting. >> vail says she followed poor advice and allowed the second bear to be improperly tagged adding she reported the incident and has fully cooperated with authorities. i am deeply sorry for my mistakes. arraignment is set for next week. neal karlinksky, abc news, seattle. >> thank you very much indeed. the man you will have to befriend if you want to listen to the wu tang clan's new album. >> a hair color debate on one of the disney's most beloved princesses.

ariel is a redhead, not a blonde. however, i would say this to stephanie marie, whilst i understand your anger, hans christian anderson, the author of the original story never in the book specified the color of the hair of the little mermaid. >> it's too late because television has intervened and she's a redhead. she's not a blonde. she's a redhead. >> disney intervened. >> disney. >> there's one funny story which is particularly interesting. a chap has bought the wu-tang clan for a reason no one understands and will never be explained. they made one album. by one album, i mean they printed one copy of this album they made. and the guy who bought it is a chap who managed to inflate the price of a life-saving drug. he invested in it and made a lot of money off the back of it. so the guy who's got this precious album is a guy lots of people don't like. now the only way you can hear that wu tang clan album is if you befriend that man than no
