Tulalip man sentenced for killing bald eagles


TULALIP – Both the federal judge and U.S. attorney came down hard Sept. 11 on a Tulalip man who pleaded guilty to clubbing two bald eagles to death.

“The destruction of these eagles is disturbing because they are a symbol of our country and because they are sacred to the tribes of our community," Chief U.S. District Judge Marsha J. Pechman said in Seattle.

U.S. Attorney Annette L. Hayes added: “The bald eagle is sacred to our Northwest Tribes and a symbol revered across our country. The wanton clubbing of two of these majestic creatures is wrong and was punished today.”
