Two teenage boys face federal charges after shooting and killing a bald eagle near Montezuma this week, officials said.

The first bullet struck the 1-year-old majestic bird in the wing, breaking two bones and knocking it out of a tree, said Dr. K.C. Cornish, the veterinarian who cared for the bird.

The second bullet was fired as the eagle lay on the ground. The bullet entered the bird’s back, went through the spine and left lung, and lodged inside the bird, officials said.
