Nebraska wildlife officials seeking bald eagle killer

NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission seeking information of who is responsible for killing an eagle in northeast Nebraska.

Norfolk radio station KNEN reports that the commission issued a “wanted” poster Friday to alert the public. The poster says an immature eagle was shot 3.5 miles southeast of Norfolk.
Bald eagles are a protected species. Those who kill an eagle are subject to a year in jail and a $5,000 fine, for a first offense. Consecutive offenses can bring much steeper fines and up to two years in prison.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Nebraska Conservation Officer Andrew Heyer at 402-613-2241 or Andrew.Heyer@nebraska.gov.
