Bald eagle dies after being shot; $2,000 reward offered for information
ARLINGTON, Wash. – State wildlife officers are struggling to understand why anybody would shoot and kill a bald eagle. Officers say that’s exactly what happened on Wednesday near Monroe in rural Snohomish County. Trained volunteers tried saving the animal but its injuries were too severe. “Animals don’t have anywhere else to go,” said Jessie Paolello, clinic manager at Sarvey Wildlife Care Center. “They’re going to keep coming closer and closer to people because we’re taking over their space.”
