    Eagle shooter sentencing

    https://www.wowt.com/content/news/S-...507565751.html




    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Prosecutors say a South Dakota man has been sentenced for his role in killing a bald eagle.

    A news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for Nebraska said Thursday that 27-year-old Abel Hernandez, of Yankton, South Dakota, was given three years of probation and fined $1,250. He also was ordered to perform 300 hours of community service.

    Investigators say that in January 2016 Hernandez and another person shot and killed the eagle and left the carcass in Cedar County, Nebraska. Pictures recovered from a cellphone showed Hernandez posing with the dead eagle.

    Bald eagles once nearly disappeared from most of the U.S. but flourished under federal protections and came off the endangered list in 2007. As a protected species, hunting them generally remains illegal.

    Generally remains illegal??? Huh? Under what circumstances can a person legally hunt a bald eagle?
    When you have the option, please buy American made. If it does not save your job, it might save mine.

    Fines are to lenient for fish and game. That should be $12,500.00

    I thought it was against the law to kill or possess any part of a bald eagle! Even for native Americans! And why in the bejeezas hell would anyone do that?
