— An online petition that calls for Punahou graduate Christian Gutierrez to be expelled from NYU has gained more than 40,000 signatures within four days.

The campaign will be sent to University President Andrew Hamilton when it reaches its goal of 50,000.

Gutierrez was sentenced last week to 45 days in jail and a $1,000 dollar fine for his involvement in the deaths of Albatross Birds at Kaena Point Natural Area Reserve in 2015.
