$2,500 reward for info on NY Bald Eagle shooting
The young raptor was one of three Bald Eagles to fledge from the Adirondacks' 11 known nests this year. A deer hunter found its body on Nov. 25 between English Road and Round Lake.
A necropsy at the DEC Wildlife Pathology Laboratory found that the eagle had been shot perhaps several weeks earlier. Bald Eagles are protected by the federal Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.
If you have information, contact the Service’s Office of Law Enforcement at 518-431-4341 or the New York DEC Division of Law Enforcement at 1-800-TIPP-DEC.
