Groups offer reward for info on Colorado bald eagle death

BOULDER, Colorado – Animal rights groups are offering a reward to help catch whoever is responsible for killing a bald eagle that was found beheaded along a Boulder hiking trail.

The Humane Society of the United States and The Humane Society Wildlife Land trust are offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to an arrest.

Authorities say a hiker found the eagle wrapped in a red cloth over the Memorial Day weekend. Its talons and feathers were missing.

Bald eagles were taken off the endangered species list two years ago.

Anyone convicted of poaching bald eagles in Colorado can face up to a year in jail and a $100,000 fine.
