Man faces multiple charges for possession of raptor parts and feathers


ELKO, Nev (KOLO) - Pictures from the Nevada Department of Wildlife show eagle and hawk feathers allegedly found in 30-year-old Dana Morley McIvor's possession. Police say they made the discovery after stopping 30-year-old Dana Morley McIvor at the Walmart Tire Center in Elko.

Calls to police had indicated there was a reckless driver in the area, leading to McIvor being stopped. In all, investigators say in his car there were two recently-killed eagles, and a hawk, two wings from 2 recently-killed hawks, along with 124 separate eagle and hawk feathers. They estimate the feathers came from at least two or three additional raptors including an eagle. As many as a dozen birds may have been killed.

“You can certainly drop the hammer once the crime is found out. And this is the beginning of that for the gentleman in Elko County who was caught with these raptor feathers,” says Chris Healy with Nevada’s Department of Wildlife.
