The DNR said the shooting of the federally protected raptor happened Saturday in Clinton County, near Highland Hills Golf Club in DeWitt Township. A citizen retrieved the eagle and brought it to Sleepy Hollow State Park to turn it over to the state agency.

DNR Lt. Sherry Chandler said she is asking people with possible information on the illegal killing to call its Report All Poaching line at 800-292-7800.

Bald eagles first received federal protection in 1940 and state protection in 1954.

Suicide by golf ball? Afraid of the proliferation of eagle killing wind turbines in the big lake, maybe the poor bird took matters into his own hands.

Kill an eagle go to federal prison for a year. Kill your unborn child go home.
