Four bald eagles killed; motive unknown

While Eastern Washington wrestles with wolf protection, the bald eagle population is recovering nicely in Western Washington – except for a sad incident near Granite Falls.
   On Jan. 9, four dead bald eagles were found floating in a lake, all apparently shot with a small caliber rifle. Although criminals sometimes poach eagles for their feathers, these birds likely were victims of random violence. Local authorities have united to offer a $13,750 cash reward for the arrest and conviction of the shooter. Read the Everett Herald article.
