KAMLOOPS, B.C. – The remains of eight bald eagles and one golden eagle have been found in a ditch near Kamloops, B.C.

The Conservation Officer Service is urging anyone with information about the discovery to come forward.

Officials say the carcasses were discovered last month in the ditch beside a well-used public road.

Heads, feet, tail feathers and wings of all nine birds had been removed.

No suspects have been identified but conservation officers continue to investigate and hope the public can provide some important clues.

There’s concern that the poaching incidents could threaten the eagle population in the southern Interior. (CKIZ)
