LAS VEGAS (AP) - State officials say they have shut down a
hummingbird rescue operation run by a woman out of her southern
Nevada home the past four years.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Marion Brady did not have the proper permits to rehabilitate the birds through Gilcrease Nature Sanctuary.

Officials at the Nevada Department of Wildlife say Brady's heart was in the right place but what she was doing was out of line.

Brady told the newspaper she was saddened by the turn of events. She took down her website and stopped accepting injured or abandoned hummingbirds Monday after being contacted by the state.

Board president of the nonprofit nature sanctuary says the permit issue is a misunderstanding.

Brady's work with hummingbirds was featured in the Review-Journal on July 7.
