Tribe's northern hawk owl killer sentenced, but will he pay?


BIRDING -- A Colville Tribe member has been ordered to pay a $1,500 fine to devote 100 hours to building bird nesting boxes for killing a northern hawk owl that had been attracting scores of birders in January to a corner of the Indian reservation.

But the tribe has not confirmed that the sentence was carried out.

"The Tribes do not intend on issuing a release on this matter at this time," Dana Cleveland, reservation supervisory attorney said Friday.
