Target: Easton Maryland Town Attorney, Brynja McDivitt Booth
Goal: Prosecute person responsible for killing bald eagles, when found.
Thirteen bald eagles were found dead in Maryland after a man stumbled across one of the carcasses in a field. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released the necropsy results, which stated that the eagles didn’t die as a result of natural causes or disease. This new information suggests that the eagles were killed by humans.
Bald eagles are no longer on the list of endangered species, but they are still protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the penalties for those who harm these eagles include possible imprisonment of up to one year and up to $100,000 in fines.
Going around and killing innocent animals for no apparent reason is sick and this kind of behavior is that of a very cruel person. Demand that when the person responsible for these senseless killings is found, they’re given the maximum penalties and fines allowed by law.
Dear Easton Marlyand Town Attorney, Brynja McDivitt Booth,
A large number of bald eagles were found dead in a field last month. Necropsy results of thirteen eagles reportedly showed that they didn’t die of natural causes and authorities believe that humans killed the birds.
This behavior is disturbing and cruel. We demand that the person responsible for these senseless animal killings receives the maximum penalties allowable by law when found.
