This pisses me off

Granite Falls, WA:

The remains of 4 Bald Eagles (3 adult, 1 juvenile) were found by the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife. At least 3 of the birds were shot with a small caliber rifle and were probably perched in trees before falling to their deaths. Nothing was taken off the bodies of the birds. They were just left to die after being shot.

Police and tribal are looking for whodunit.

  • Probably an American hating liberal that only knows how to use a gun on indefensible animals.

  • doesnt matter why it was done

    It does if it's someone who makes a habit of it and only got caught this time.

  • It is sad. And the person(s) who did this is an asshole and a fool.

    However... as others have pointed out, they are birds of prey. Granted, if the birds were giving someone trouble on their land, and killing small animals, then there are other ways to handle it... especially knowing that bald eagles are protected.
