Eagle Killing in Kansas

There is simply no reason for this,

TOPEKA, Kan. -- The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is investigating after two bald eagles were found shot to death in Kansas.

The first eagle was found Monday in a ditch near the Ness County-Trego County line. The second eagle was found Tuesday near the Montgomery County-Wilson County line.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism said in a news release Thursday that X-rays found metal in both eagles.

Bald eagles are protected by federal law.

Anyone with information about the deaths of the eagles is asked to contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Topeka at 785-232-5149, or the Kansas wildlife department's hotline at 1-877-426-3843.


    1. I completely agree that it's a senseless crime and the lowlifes should be hung from the rafters, but watch the source you're quoting.

      HSUS isn't a friend of the hunting man.

      I'm not saying it didn't happen, but those links would appear nowhere near my blog.

      1. I cleaned it up a bit Scamp, my aim was to call attention to this bs that continues to go on. My choice of who to quote was unfortunate.
