Two protected eagles were found shot with their tail feathers missing at the Navajo Agricultural Products Industry (NAPI) in the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) reports the first was a bald eagle, found on March 13, 2018, who later died as a result of the injuries. The second bird, an adult male golden eagle, was found on March 21, 2018. Rescuers had to amputate one of his wings at the wrist, and although recovering, the eagle will not be able to return to the wild due to the injuries.

Thankfully, the injured golden eagle was rescued in time and is now in the care of Hawks Aloft.

 

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has released a request for any information that can lead to tracking down those who are responsible for these atrocious crimes. They state: “Anyone with information regarding the shootings of these eagles is asked to contact the Service’s Office of Law Enforcement in Albuquerque, New Mexico (505- 346-7828), or the Navajo Nation Department of Fish & Wildlife/ Navajo Nation’s Operation Game Thief (928- 221-9114). Callers with information may remain anonymous. The Service is offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for the shootings of these eagles.”

Anyone with information regarding the shootings of these protected eagles is strongly encouraged to contact authorities.

 

FWS explains that bald eagles and golden eagles are protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Taking, shooting, injuring or killing an eagle violates these acts and guilty parties can face up to one year of jail time and up to $100,000-$250,000 in fines.

Shot with tail feathers missing? Sounds like this was done to sell the feathers to Indians for use in their rites.
