While bald eagles are no longer an endangered species, they are still protected by multiple federal laws, and other state and municipal statutes.

A $2,500 reward is offered for information leading to who is responsible for fatally shooting two bald eagles in a remote area of northern Minnesota.

An anonymous tip sent an officer with the state Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to a spot along the Blackduck River near the town of Blackduck on April 23, said agency spokesman Joe Albert.

The officer found the dead eagles and turned them over to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), which will do a necropsy in hopes of learning more about the circumstances of the deaths.
