FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Reward Offered in Bald Eagle Shooting
 
ST. CROIX CO., Wisc. (June 12, 2015) —The Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons who shot and killed an American bald eagle in St. Croix County. 
 
According to a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources press release, a dead eagle was discovered atop a pile of brush in a pool of blood about 60 yards off the road in the Town of Forest near the intersection of 290th Street and Highway 64 on March 17. The Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory in Madison confirmed the eagle was killed by a bullet. The bald eagle is a protected wild animal in Wisconsin and is also federally protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. Under this act it is illegal to pursue, shoot, shoot at, poison, wound, kill, capture, trap, collect or disturb an eagle.
 
Melissa Tedrowe, Wisconsin state director for The HSUS, said: “This killing was not only a senseless act, but a serious crime. We’re grateful to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for its tireless work to protect bald eagles in our state and we hope that our reward will encourage anyone with information to come forward.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Warden Kruse at 715-531-7667, or call or text the DNR Hotline 1-800-TIP-WDNR or 1-800-847-9367. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
