Game, Humane Groups Offer $5K in Bald Eagle Death



The Pennsylvania Game Commission and The Humane Society of the United States are offering more than $5,000 for information on whoever fatally shot a bald eagle in Cambria County earlier this month.
 
The wounded eagle was found by people riding all-terrain vehicles on May 10 near Loretto. The bird died before it could be treated for a single wound from a small-caliber gun. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the game commission is offering a $250 reward and the Humane Society $5,000 more for information leading to an arrest.
 
Wounding or killing the birds is a state and federal crime. The birds are no longer considered endangered or threatened under federal guidelines, though the species remains on the threatened list in Pennsylvania.
