Officials investigate fatal shooting of bald eagleDecember 26, 2019

BEDFORD — State conservation officers are investigating the deadly shooting of a bald eagle in southern Indiana and offering a reward to anyone with information.
The investigation began last week after a landowner notified a Lawrence County animal control officer and officials with the Brown County Indiana Raptor Center of an injured bird. It had suffered an apparent gunshot wound and was treated for injuries but died, officials said.
“When I found it, it was on the ground, its wing was obviously broken,” Lola Nicholson, the animal control officer, told The (Bedford) Times-Mail. “You could tell immediately it had been shot. It was wheezing, so that told me it had blood in its lung cavity.”
The birds are no longer endangered but remain protected by two federal laws.
Earlier this week, Louisiana wildlife agents said at least one bald eagle may have been killed in the state's northwest region.
