Golden eagle killed by Wash. wind turbines

 

A golden eagle was killed by a wind turbine blade at a southwest Washington wind farm, a state biologist says.

 
GOLDENDALE, Wash. —

A golden eagle was killed by a wind turbine blade at a southwest Washington wind farm, a state biologist says.

The Columbian newspaper in Vancouver, Wash., reported that it is the first known eagle fatality caused by a Washington wind project.

The 10-pound bird had a broken wing and two broken legs after the April 27 accident at Goodnoe Hills Wind Project southeast of Goldendale, said Travis Nelson, the state's lead biologist on wind power issues.

"This is certainly not the outcome that anyone who was involved in planning and permitting this operation would have wanted, especially the project owner," Nelson said. "We have convened a small review group internally to discuss how we can avoid this in the future."

Three Valley men arrested for investigation of eagle poaching

By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS
The Associated Press

SPOKANE -- Four men accused of killing and selling bald and golden eagles and other protected birds were arrested Thursday by federal agents.
The arrests were made by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Justice Department after an undercover investigation into the trade for eagle parts and feathers.
Arrested were Ricky Sam Wahchumwah of Granger; Alfred L. Hawk Jr. of White Swan; William Wahsise, also of White Swan; and Reginald Dale Akeen, also known as J.J. Lonelodge, of Anadarko, Okla. All were arrested for investigation of violating the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and the Lacey Act.
The three men from Washington were in custody in Spokane, and did not make a court appearance Thursday, said Joan Jewett of the FWS in Portland. Akeen was in custody in another state, she said.
A complaint filed in federal court in Eastern Washington alleges that Hawk sold undercover agents a bald eagle tail, two golden eagle tails, one set of golden eagle wings, four red-shafted northern flicker tails, four rough-legged hawk tails and two northern harrier tails, all for $3,000.A second complaint contends Hawk and Wahsise hunted and killed three bald eagles by sitting near some wild horses killed to bait and attract the birds.
