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