Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency / Facebook

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency shared a couple of photos of a bald eagle that was killed in Lake County, Tennessee and there’s a reward to find the killer. 

“Reward for information regarding the prosecution of a person or persons involved in the eagle death is being offered. Anyone with information should call the USFWS at 615-736-5532 or TWRA Region 1 Office at 731-423-5725,” Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency wrote on Facebook.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is not happy about it and is willing to reward someone with $10,000 for any information that will lead them to the person(s) responsible for killing the eagle.

The eagle was an adult and was shot on Club House Road on March 20. According to the law, bald eagles are protected in the United States under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.

If anyone decides they want to take one from the wild, injure one they find, or kill one, they will get a hefty fine of $5000 or get one-year imprisonment and a $10,000 fine.

If caught breaking the law again by taking, injuring, or killing another eagle, the person will be faced with more fines and not more than two years of imprisonment for the second offense.
