A B.C. provincial court judge has indicated he will declare a mistrial in the eagle poaching case against two First Nations men.

Gary Abbott and Ralph Leon were among 11 men charged with a total of 105 offences related to the unlawful possession of dead wildlife, trafficking in dead wildlife and other related offences. The charges, laid in April 2006, came after a 15-month Conservation Officer Service investigation that began with the discovery of 50 dead eagles in North Vancouver.
