A tree with an eagle nest in Campbell River was cut down yesterday!! It seems to have been done without permission. Here on the Lower Mainland of BC, the Ministry of Environment usually contacts David Hancock to check out each situation before they will issue a permit for a tree removal.
Campbell River is over on Vancouver Island and apparently no one got the approval needed for such an act. Many of the residents there are angry about the unauthorized cut and the owner of the property isn't talking. Thanks to Nikki for this news tip.
Here's a link to the news report that was on the Victoria station, CHEK-6 News, tonight:
