Maryland Natural Resources Police are investigating the killing of two bald eagles in Montgomery County over the past week.

The first was shot with a rifle at about 3 p.m. on Christmas Day while feeding on a deer carcass in a field that adjoins Georgia Avenue and Bordley Road in Brookville, according to a police news release.

Then, on Saturday morning, another eagle was found wounded by a bird shot near a residence on Deakins Lane in Darnestown, the release said. The bird later died of its injuries.

Investigators believe the shootings are unrelated.

Anyone with information on the shootings may call the Department of Natural Resources Communications Center, 410-260-8888. Callers who wish to remain anonymous may call the Catch-A-Poacher hotline at 1-800-635-6124, where a reward is possible

 


What kind of punk shoots a bald eagle?  Disgusting.

I am not sure I understand your point.  Have people been shooting armless children?

Or would if be somehow less offensive to give a child a gun and than shoot them?

Read the news. Some gun nuts will shoot anything.

Shooting an unarmed child is against the law in America, and arming a child is against the law, I thought you knew that. Well, maybe not in the sunshine state

Arming children is not illegal unless they are unsupervised. Shooting anyone is generally illegal. Unfortunately circumstances sometimes make shooting grownups and even kids both legal and necessary. I am not sure what they hell happened in the sunshine state's famous case. I know you "know".

I wonder if they were mature eagles with the white heads ........

 

I think it takes up to 5 years fort heir heads to turn white ......

 

not making excuses for shooting anything you aren't going to eat but could have like like a vulture from a bit away on that deer carcass......

 

they probably had an o crap moment when they realized what they did .....

181 black citizens were shot & killed in Baltimore City in 2013.  How many were killed by "gun nuts"?

A real fist-shaking moment is when you're fishing and a bald eagle steals the catch off the line or from your holding.

Punk, I would love to have that happen. As long as he did not get caught by the hook.
