Objectivity 3.6 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

On Tuesday in Nebraska, Stanton County Sheriff’s office responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle near a public recreation area.  The vehicle was found in connection with two 20-year-old Honduran nationals in possession of a dead bald eagle.  The sheriff’s office said, “…the two had shot and killed the protected national bird in that area and stated they planned on cooking and eating the bird.”  Killing a bald eagle is a violation of the federal Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act punishable by as much as a year in prison and a $100,000 fine.  Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger told ‘Fox & Friends’ that he cannot reach anyone in the federal government to help move this case forward and he is “very frustrated.”
