More Mutilated Eagles Found Near Vancouver

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The remains of 14 eagles feared killed for their talons and tail feathers have been found near Vancouver, the second such discovery this month, officials said Monday.


The dead birds were discovered in suburban North Vancouver near the place where the mutilated carcasses of 26 eagles were found on Feb. 2, according to British Columbia's Conservation Officer Service.


Wildlife officials suspect the birds were killed by a poacher who removed the talons and tail feathers to sell them on the black market. Trafficking in eagle parts is illegal in British Columbia.
