Reward offered for info on shot NH bald eagle

Millsfield, N.H. (AP) – Federal wildlife officials are offering
a reward to anyone with information that helps catch the person who
shot a young bald eagle in Millsfield, N.H., last month.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is offering a reward of up to
$2,500 under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. Tipsters can
call 1-800-344-4262. State and federal officials are investigating
the shooting that happened on or about Oct. 22.

Local sportsmen found the injured eagle and notified state
officials. A wildlife rehabilitator is caring for the bird. It was
shot with a shotgun and suffered a fractured wing and other
injuries.

A veterinarian expects the wing to heal well enough for the
eagle to fly again. It eventually will be released into the
wild.
