The Conservation Officer Service is asking for the public’s assistance in their investigation into the illegal killing of nine eagles near Kamloops.

Eight Bald Eagles and one Golden Eagle were found in March with their heads, feet, tail feathers and wings removed. The eagle carcasses were discovered in a ditch near a well-used public road.

Under the Wildlife Act, it is an offence to possess, take, injure, or destroy an eagle or its eggs, or the nests when occupied by an eagle or egg.

The Conservation Officer Service is currently investigating to find those responsible. If you have any information, you are asked to call the Report all Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) line at 1 877-952-7277 or online at: www.env.gov.bc.ca/cos/rapp/form.htm.

The BC Wildlife Federation pay rewards up to $5,000 for information leading to the conviction of persons who have violated laws related to the protection of fish, wildlife or the environment.
