HONOLULU (AP) — Officials in Hawaii are investigating whether any state rules and regulations were broken during the filming of the new History channel television show "American Jungle."

The Department of Land and Natural Resources said Wednesday that an episode that aired Nov. 17 showed hunters at night, but hunting at night is illegal on both public and private land.

The department also says the Division of Forestry and Wildlife denied the production crew's request for a permit to film on state forest lands, but maps used on the show clearly demark areas under the department's jurisdiction.

An email seeking comment was sent to representatives of History channel owner A&E Television Networks.

According to the network's website, the show depicts "clans" fighting over access to territorial hunting grounds and using knives and spears to take down prey like wild boar and goats.
