Webster County, Iowa – According to the Webster County Crimestoppers, there is now a $500 reward for information directly leading to arrest of the suspected bald eagle killer in Webster County over the past two weeks.
The cases have left DNR Conservation Officer William Spece puzzled.
Spece said via the Fort Dodge Messenger that bald eagle shootings are “incredibly rare” but he has reason to believe that these cases are connected.
According to Spece, both eagles were shot using similar caliber firearms.
If you have information regarding the eagle deaths, contact the Webster County Crimestoppers at (515)-573-1444 or contact the DNR Poacher’s Hotline at 532-2020.
