$7,500 Reward Offered for Information in Death of a Bald Eagle in Montgomery, Alabama

Wildlife investigators are offering a reward of $2,500 to help find the shooter of a bald eagle in Montgomery, Alabama. The Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust are adding $5,000 to the reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.

The bald eagle was found injured in a community between Trace Lane and Sullivan Trace off Butler Mill Road. X-rays showed he had been shot in the left wing with multiple breaks. Due to the complexity of the injuries, the eagle was euthanized. 

The Service is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information that leads to a conviction.

Nicole Paquette, vice president for Wildlife Protection for The HSUS said: “We are appalled at this blatant disregard for bald eagles in Alabama. The Humane Society of the United States is grateful to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for their efforts to find those responsible.”

To provide information, contact John Rawls, Special Agent, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Office of Law Enforcement, in Wetumpka, Alabama at 334-478-7900 or john_rawls@fws.gov.
