Conservation service investigates new leads after mutilated eagle remains found in Kamloops

Okanagan Lake Eagles - Teresa Sikorski

The B.C. Conservation Service has received some solid leads after the remains of eight bald eagles and one golden eagle have been found near Kamloops.

Nine eagle carcasses were found in a ditch beside a well used public road in March with their heads, feet, wings and tail feathers removed.

Since this story went public last week, conservation says the response from the public has been strong.

Conservation officers are working closely with the Tk’emlups Indian band in the investigation and are actively following up on all leads.
