West Monroe Man Sentenced for Killing Bald Eagle

animals.nationalgeographic.com

It was an expensive hunting trip for a West Monroe man.  23-year-old Jeffrey Miles has been ordered to pay a fine of more than $2500 and serve three years of unsupervised probation for shooting a mature bald eagle in April of last year.  A federal magistrate in Monroe has also revoked Miles’ hunting privileges for the next three years.  Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents launched an investigation in April of last year after finding a dead bald eagle in a drainage ditch in Franklin Parish.  After a thorough investigation and tips from the public through LDWF’s Operation Game Thief hotline, Miles was arrested about two weeks later and charged with violating a federal act that protects bald and golden eagles.  He pled guilty in September of last year and was sentenced this week.
