Bald Eagle Injured By Bullet, Left To Die 2-25-2011

The Michigan Department Of Natural Resources and Environment is asking for your help to track down whoever shot and wounded a bald eagle in Genesee County.
The bird was found last weekend near the Argentine-Gaines township border.
Medical evaluation and X-rays determined that the bird was shot, leaving it with a broken wing.
Authorities said they believe the eagle was shot with a shot gun.
It's not clear if the bird will recover enough to be released back into the wild.
Bald eagles first received federal protection in 1940 and then in the state of Michigan in 1954.
Shooting a bald eagle carries a fine up to $1,000, plus jail time.
Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is urged to call the DNRE’s “report all poaching” hotline at 1-800-292-7800.
