Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Fish and Game officers are looking for individuals responsible for poaching bald eagles and hawks in Mission Valley over the weekend.
According to KPAX: “MISSOULA –
Someone is poaching bald eagles and hawks in the Mission Valley and selling their feathers.
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service along with Tribal game wardens are working the case to find whoever is doing it.
Last weekend, residents in the Saint Ignatius area between Missoula and Polson found several bald eagles and hawks dead and dismembered and tossed in a creek.
Investigator Brandon Couture says the birds are often ‘baited’ with deer or elk carcasses left along the river corridor.
Then the suspects shoot the birds with a small-caliber rifle.”
