A bird hunter in the Philippines captured a Worcester buttonquail, a bird scientists had suspected to be extinct, and allowed a TV crew to film and photograph the bird (see the entire photo here at National Geographic).

Then he sold the bird to the market, where it was sold for food.

That's how hunters roll in the Philippines.
