Idiot from West Monroe kills a bald eagle.

quote:

MONROE - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says a 22-year-old West Monroe man has admitted shooting
a bald eagle found beheaded near Winnsboro in April.

Spokesman Adam Einck says Jeffrey M. Miles pleaded guilty Monday in federal court in Monroe to one count of violating the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. He says he can't say whether Miles cut off the bird's head.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen Hayes scheduled sentencing Jan. 3.

The maximum penalty is a $100,000 fine and a year in jail.

Col. Winton Vidrine, head of the department's law enforcement division, says tips helped investigators solve the case.

The eagle's body was found in a drainage ditch April 4, and state agents cited Miles on April 22.

I have to disagree on the severity of this. Sounds like a tremendous waste of money if incarcerated.

He should get in trouble for this but there are Bald Eagles all over the place. I'm pretty sure they aren't endangered or anything.

Bald Eagles are stupid birds and should not be protected in their proliferation.

This is so not a metaphor for minorities. Stop saying that.

The article says "tips". He probably bragged about it to the wrong person.

Fair enough, $100,000 fine will do. Let him spend the next 20 years paying off that debt.

wikipedia lists their Endangered Status as "least concern."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bald_Eagle


The whole idea of people getting up in arms about killing a bald eagle is retarded. I'm sure it all stems from some form of manipulated patriotism as the bird is a symbol of 'merica and if you don't play along well then you're just some unpatriotic douche.

Funny thing is, the types of people I normally see getting all bent out of shape about the killing of a bald eagle are the flag waving neo-con types, and yet, their politics should lead them to be against endangered species type legislation.

Whatever, people that get bent out of shape of this stuff are the type of people that are easily manipulated. I doubt they understand consistency in political philosophies.

Yeah I thought that was a little weird too, but here's the LINK

Who would want to kill a bald eagle? That guy, apparently. That's actually the first one in my life that I've heard of getting killed by someone.

I always thought they were dangerously endangered..

Or maybe he put it on the top of a cane-like for a handle. That would be cool too.

Maybe he was hoping that they wouldn't know if it were a bald eagle by chopping off the head....
