CAROLINE CO., Md. - Officials are offering a reward for information, after a bald eagle was found dead.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says on February 13th, a dead bald eagle was found near the intersection of Garey and Greensboro Roads. Officials believe that the bird died of secondary poisoning after feeding on a fox.

Bald eagles are no longer endangered, but they are still federally protected, meaning that if convicted, fines can total up to $100,000, along with up to a year in prison.

Anyone with information on these events, should call Special Agent John LaCorte with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Office of Law Enforcement in Cambridge, at 410-228-2476. The Service is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information that leads to a conviction.
