The Pennsylvania Deer Association has added $500 of its funds to the reward monies being made available for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the recent killing of an American bald eagle in Fort Loudon, Franklin County. According to Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director Vern Ross, the total reward monies available now stand at $6,750.

”We fully support the investigative efforts of the Pennsylvania Game Commission to find those responsible for this unsportsman-like act,” said James B. Seitz, Pennsylvania Deer Association president. “We also want all to know that we, as Pennsylvania sportsmen and women, do truly care about wildlife and that the killing of our national symbol is an act that no Pennsylvanian should tolerate.”

Earlier, Ross announced that reward monies are being offered by the Pennsylvania Game Commission; John Peet of West Chester; Sam Goodman of Warminster; Mt. Parnell Fisheries in Fort Loudon, Franklin County; the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmens Clubs; the Pennsylvania Audubon Society; the Fund for Animals; Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers; and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers announced that it was offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the person or persons responsible. Informants may remain anonymous, but they must call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-4-PA-TIPS.

Also, under the U.S. Bald Eagle Protection Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service may offer a reward of up to $2,500 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of someone who kills an eagle.

Found by Peters Township residents, the eagle was killed and had its talons removed during the weekend of June 24 and 25. Lab analysis has revealed several clues about the type of firearm used. The eagle was “immature,” which means that it had not yet developed its characteristic white plumage on the head and tail.

In all cases, informants may remain anonymous by calling the Pennsylvania Game Commission TIP Hotline at 1-888-PGC-8001; the Game Commission’s Southcentral Regional Office at 1-877-877-9107; or Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers at 1-800-4-PA-TIPS.

”Someone knows who shot this eagle and someone knows who removed its talons,” said Franklin County Wildlife Conservation Officer Kevin Mountz. “Any information about this incident will be kept in strict confidentiality.”
