$14,000 reward in shooting Granite Falls eaglesJanuary 18, 2013 @ 8:44 am
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.
