Trafficking endangered eagle parts brings a $25,000 fine

Trafficking endangered eagle parts brings a $25,000 fine

NORTH BATTLEFORD, Sask.–A Saskatchewan pawnshop owner has been fined $25,000 for trafficking in wildlife, including parts of bald and golden eagles.

Linda Bomok of North Battleford, Sask., pleaded guilty to Wildlife Act charges.

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment says Bomok's conviction follows a year-long investigation.

The ministry says in this case eagles in Saskatchewan were killed for their feathers and other parts, which were then sold in Canada and around the world.

Kevin Callele, a spokesperson for the ministry, says the illegal trade affects the birds' populations and the conviction will help eliminate a source of eagle parts.

Bomok's fine includes a donation of $1,200 to the Wild and Exotic Animal Medicine Society, a Saskatoon-based non-profit organization that rehabilitates birds of prey and returns them to the wild.

American Eagle Still Missing from Zoo

By Mark Nino

Story Updated: Oct 13, 2008 at 4:28 PM CDT

The Gladys Porter Zoo's escaped American Bald Eagle was thought to be spotted 4 times over the weekend, but they were all false alarms.

Zoo employees responded to four different locations after receiving calls that the bird was at a certain location and upon arrival they saw it was not the eagle, but other birds with similar features.

The bird has been missing since Thursday and has an injured wing and limited eye site. If you spot the escaped bird call the Gladys Porter Zoo at 956.453.6199 OR 956.372.6448.
