Two Golden Eaglets Killed One Wounded

St.George Utah
Two golden eagles found killed in Iron County nest
Third eaglet is found injured at the bottom of a 100-foot-deep pit

CEDAR CITY - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources are offering up to $3,500 in reward money for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the shooting of two golden eaglets in Iron County.

The birds were found Thursday at a historic eagle nest site north of the Iron County Firing Range near the Three Peaks Recreation Area.

Two eaglets, within a week or 10 days of being able to fly, were killed at the nest site. A third eaglet managed to escape the poachers and was recovered at the bottom of an adjacent pit approximately 100 feet deep. This male eaglet is being treated for its injuries and will be in rehabilitation for some time. A preliminary examination of the two eaglets indicated that the shooting occurred within the past few days.
