Five members of Hopi Tribe charged for collecting golden eagles
Five members of the Hopi Tribe of Arizona were charged for taking golden eagles without a federal permit.

Eugene Mansfield, Brendan Mansfield, Eldrice Mansfield, Emmett Namoki and Lucas Namoki Jr. are accused of taking baby eagles from a nest on the Navajo Nation. They have been charged with counts of unlawfully taking, possessing and transporting the eaglets.

Apparently, only one of the five was set to receive a permit to gather eagles.
