I am sad to report that more eagles have been killed for their lucrative body parts and feathers to be sold on the black market. This time it was in the South Delta area near Delta Port. It was called to my attention yesterday and the media have been alerted. We are hoping that the culprit/s will be caught and severaly punished.
Larry Pynn of the Vancouver Sun has written an article about it in today's paper. You can read it here:
The province is seeking public assistance with an investigation into the gruesome discovery of up to five plastic garbage bags full of badly decomposed bald eagle parts in a South Delta ditch

10:30 AM - I have just been interviewed by phone for a story that CBC Vancouver is developing. So you will want to watch for a story on this evening's newscast. I referred them to one of our members who lives in Delta and monitors the surrounding eagles nests for HWF. Hopefully they can interview her out near where the bags of dead eagles were found.
