Earn Eleven Thousand Dollars For Turning In A Killer Of Bald Eagles

poisoned bald eagle in louisianaIn a field outside of Plaquemine, a community just to the south of Baton Rouge, Louisiana two dead bald eagles have been found in close proximity to three dead black vultures, one dead possum, and four dead coyotes. Also found in the field was a pile of meat and bones with poison strewn over it.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Humane Society of the United States, Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust, and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries are teaming up to offer an $11,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of people responsible for the poisoning of the eagles.

Those with information can call the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’ Operation Game Thief’s toll free hotline at 1-800-442-2511.

Last year, Alvin C. Sowinski and Paul A. Sowinski were convicted of using poison to kill bald eagles, ermine, bobcat, coyotes, vultures, and many other species of wildlife in order to make it easier to hunt for pheasants on their potato farm in Oneida County, Wisconsin.

    Hunters? They don’t want to hunt. They want someone to hand them some game birds so they can run home and tell lies about how hard it was to get them. Those people need to learn how to hunt, then go into the field to find food for themselves and let other species do the same.

    It’s a shame people don’t feel the same way about babies. We can kill them sell their little baby parts, no problem. Reward people for turning in people who kill a bird but put people in jail for reporting murder of unborn and born babies, something is wrong with this picture!!!

      Actually, the story about the selling of “little baby parts” is a complete hoax.

      Also, killing babies in the United States is illegal. Fetuses, embryos and zygotes aren’t babies. Argue for protecting fetuses, embryos and zygotes if you want, but don’t confuse terms.

      There have been plenty of societies where infanticide was legal. The United States is not one of them.
