I don't get what generates the desire to shoot a bald eagle.

One in Megs County and another in Rhea County

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has issued the $2500.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for shooting the eagles.

Anyone with knowledge regarding these two shootings is asked to contact the TWRA, Region III office at 931-484-9571 or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at: 615-736-5532.

Bald eagles are protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Violating those acts can result in a maximum criminal penalty of up to $100,000 and/or one year in federal prison, as well as state charges.
