Federal and state wildlife agencies are searching for those responsible for poisoning six bald eagles last month on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Ironically, the eagles were found on a farm in Birdsnest, Virginia, a well-known migratory corridor. Eagles often arrive in late winter when food is scarce so they scavenge.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service along with Virginia's Department of Game and Inland Fisheries say someone may have set out poisoned bait to kill a fox or coyote but killed five eagles instead.
