17 people and two pawn shops sentenced for eagle trafficking

https://rapidcityjournal.com/news/local/people-and-two-pawn-shops-sentenced-for-eagle-trafficking/article_c7159b56-cfcd-53c9-a7b3-ec521c3f4745.html




This Nevada Department of Wildlife photo shows a Nevada game warden displaying the carcasses and wings of two golden eagles and a hawk seized from an Arizona man accused of killing an eagle and illegally possessing raptor parts at the department's office in Elko. A two-year undercover operation in South Dakota has led to indictments against 15 people for illegally trafficking eagles and other migratory birds. The case in federal court in South Dakota offers a rare window into the black market for eagle feathers, parts and handicrafts.
