VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - They are the symbol of America. Free and wild. But years ago the American bald eagle was on the brink of extinction. Thanks to the Endangered Species Act, the bald eagle and so many other threatened birds have made a remarkable comeback.
Back in March, six American bald eagles were found poisoned in Northampton County. Thanks to the efforts of those at the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro, one eagle managed to survive. Last week, that lucky bird was released back into the wild.
There are not a lot of details to how these six eagles were poisoned, but an investigation is underway.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Office of Law Enforcement is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever poisoned the eagles found in Northampton County.
