Reward Offered As Indiana DNR Investigates Shooting Of Bald Eagle


BEDFORD, Ind. (AP) — State conservation officers are investigating the shooting death of a bald eagle in southern Indiana and offering a $1,000 reward to anyone with information.

Indiana Department of Natural Resources officials say the investigation began last week when a Lawrence County animal control officer and others were notified of an injured eagle. Attempts to revive the bird were unsuccessful.

The birds are no longer endangered but remain protected by two federal laws.

Authorities are seeking help from the public.
