And a headline from Idaho, a state fish and game commissioner has submitted his resignation after a firestorm involving his photos. A trophy photo of an entire family of baboons that many say crossed the line. Here's Paula Faris. Reporter: This photo from an African trophy hunt has sparked outrage across the country, even within the hunting community. Blake fisher, the Idaho fish and e-mail with these photos to his family and colleagues. A slain giraffe, a leopard and this entire family of baboons propped up in poses, including a baby in the front. Fisher bragging, "I shot a whole family of baboons." Tonight, fisher resigned, after groups demanding he resign pointing out Idaho's hunting manual says to refrain from taking graphic photographs of the kill. To round them up in a big group hug with a big smile on his face with a little baby leaning back with his mom. I'm sorry, that's just over the top. Reporter: Fisher tells an Idaho newspaper, "I didn't do anything illegal. I didn't do anything unethical. I didn't do anything immoral." There's a lot of things that are legal, but they're unethical and they're wrong. Reporter: Those calling for fisher to resign point out the way he described killing that entire family of baboons. Saying it was unsportsmanlike and undermined the sporting community.
