Help authorities find who poached this bald eagle and you could earn a reward.
The Oklahoma Game Wardens are working an eagle poaching case and they need the help of the public. Warden Brandon Lehrman found the dead eagle, a juvenile, in a wheat field in Greer County. Upon closer examination, he found the eagle had two holes from a rifle in it.
One of the shots went through the eagle's wing. The other went through its chest.
The eagle was found ¼ of a mile south of the intersection of E1430 and N2040 in an area south of Granite. Wardens posted photos of the eagle as it was found on their Facebook page.
Anyone with information on this poaching case is urged to contact Warden Lehrman at 580-450-7706.
Tips can also be left anonymously on Oklahoma's anti-poaching hotline at 1-800-522-8039.
The Oklahoma Wardens are offering a $500 reward for information. An additional $500 was offered up by a member of the public who saw the post and offered to help.
