Bald Eagle Shot, Died Over Night

A bald eagle that was shot 2, or 3 days ago, but found by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Association yesterday, died over night.

But the Texas Parks and Wildlife Association still needs your help in finding the person who shot a bald eagle. The eagle was found between Highway 19 and 64, just south of Canton, that's between Canton and Martin Mills community.

"They say the bullet went through its back and out its chest," Chris Green, Smith County Game Warden said.

Bald eagles are not endangered, but it is against the law to kill them. Since the bald eagle died, the person who shot him is found, they could face a $10,000 fine.

If you have any information in this case, please call the Texas parks and wildlife hotline at 1-800-792-GAME.
