Dismembered eagles still under investigation

 KAMLOOPS – The provincial conservation office received leads following the discovery of 9 eagle torsos in a ditch, but the investigation remains ongoing.

"We appreciate what we've received but the more the better," Sgt. Andy Mackay with the Conservation office said.

The nine bird bodies were stripped of claws, wings, tail feathers and heads. Eight were bald eagles - the ninth was a golden eagle.

The birds were found near Spiyu7ullucw Ranch, formerly known as Harper Ranch.

Parted out, the price of the birds on the black market can range from $400 - $1000.

Anyone with tips regarding the birds is asked to call the Report all Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) line at 1-877-952-7277.

The B.C. 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.
