Northern Arapaho Tribe receives permit to take bald eagles
Posted: Wednesday, March 14, 2012
The Northern Arapaho Tribe
of Wyoming has received a federal permit to kill two bald eagles, the Associated Press reports.
The tribe filed an application for a permit with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
nearly three years ago. The tribe sued the agency last year as the process dragged on.
Permits to take bald eagles are rarely, if ever granted. And going through the National Eagle Repository
for eagle parts can take years.
The bald eagle is no longer considered an endangered or threatened species. But it remains protected under federal laws.
