FISH AND WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT ON FEDERAL LANDS: DEBUNKING STATE SUPREMACY - https://law.lclark.edu/live/files/25224-5tojciniepdf

Quote from above: "This Article reviews the authority of federal and state governments to manage wildlife on federal lands. It first describes the most common assertions  made  by  state  governments  regarding  state  powers  over wildlife  and  then  analyzes the  relevant  powers  and  limitations  of  the United  States  Constitution  and federal  land  laws,  regulations,  and policies.  Wildlife-specific  provisions  applicable  within  the  National  Park System, National Wildlife Refuge System, National Forest System,
Bureau of Land Management, the special case of Alaska, and the National Wilderness Preservation System are covered, as is the Endangered Species Act."

Note: This article startled me, so I researched it over a couple of hours. While it sounds sleazy and like an abuse of the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, this facility apparently obtained the eagle exhibition pictured in the article legally. Of course I don't know if they obtained an exhibition permit, how long they had to wait (the FWS estimates a 2-year wait for Native Americans to receive a whole bird from the National Eagle Repository), or just how this New Jersey representative assisted them in "securing an American Bald Eagle from the National Wildlife Property Repository," which is not the same entity but in the same location as the National Eagle Repository. I suppose it's possible the Property Repository had a confiscated, stuffed eagle lying around and "donated" or loaned it to the facility. The facility also seems to meet the definitions of a facility eligible to receive a whole eagle body, even though a Google search brings up lots of images of the place being used for weddings and not education. I don't think the arboretum received the eagle from the National Eagle Repository or jumped over others waiting in line for a whole eagle body. But I was certainly surprised to learn that someone other than a Native American could possess a bald eagle body! ~T40

One of their objectives is to, "Loan wildlife property to USFWS offices, other Federal, State and municipal government offices and public educational and/or scientific institutions."
