$14,000 reward in shooting Granite Falls eagles

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The reward for information to help convict the person who killed four eagles near Granite Falls is now nearly $14,000.

The Stillaguamish Tribe, Humane Society of the United States and Conservation Northwest are offering money to help state Fish and Wildlife investigators.

The dead birds were found Jan. 9 floating in a lake and were apparently shot.

Wildlife Sgt. Jennifer Maurstad told The Daily Herald ( http://bit.ly/Sej8bP) talons and feathers were not taken, so it appears the motive for the shooting was something other than poaching.

Killing an eagle is a federal misdemeanor and also a state crime with fines and up to 90 days in jail.
