Reward in slaying of 4 bald eagles up to $14,000

The reward for information to help convict the person who killed four eagles near Granite Falls is now nearly $14,000.

The Stillaguamish Tribe, Humane Society of the United States and Conservation Northwest are offering money to help state Fish and Wildlife investigators.

The dead birds were found Jan. 9 floating in a lake and were apparently shot.

Wildlife Sgt. Jennifer Maurstad told The Daily Herald (http://bit.ly/Sej8bP) talons and feathers were not taken, so it appears the motive for the shooting was something other than poaching.

Killing an eagle is a federal misdemeanor and also a state crime with fines and up to 90 days in jail.
