In Nebraska, two men were out hunting for birds and shot a bald eagle.
The men seemed unaware that these animals were in the area.
They were also unaware that these animals are protected under federal law.
It was even their intention to “eat the bird later” when they were questioned by authorities.
More people in the area are likely unaware that these birds are protected and that they are nesting in the area.
Please sign this petition to urge the Nebraska Game and Park Commission to protect these majestic birds!
