Rewards Offered For Culprits In VA Eagle Deaths

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Rewards totaling $7,500 are being offered in hopes of finding those responsible for the deaths of five bald eagles on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
    
The eagles were found poisoned between March 8 and March 14 in Birdsnest in Northampton County.
    
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Thursday it is offering a reward of $2,500 for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the birds' deaths. A $5,000 reward is being offered by The Humane Society of the United States and The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust.
    
A sixth eagle found in Birdsnest survived. It is scheduled to be released Thursday at Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia Beach. The eagle was rehabilitated by the Wildlife Center of Virginia.
