DNR investigating bald eagle death in Mecosta Co.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is asking for the public's help in its investigation of a bald eagle death in Mecosta County. 

 

 

DNR officials say the eagle was discovered in a tree in Grant Township on March 1.

 

The bird was the victim of a traumatic injury.

 

Lab tests at Michigan State University could help determine the eagle's cause of death.

 

The penalty for killing a bald eagle is up to 90 days in jail, a fine ranging from $100 to $1,000, or both; and reimbursement to the state of $1,500 per eagle.

 

Anyone with information can call the DNR at (800) 292-7800.
