Mystery has surrounded the case of 13 bald eagles that died in February on the Eastern Shore. It’s looking like it’ll remain that way.
According to the Washington Post, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is moving toward shutting down their probe into who killed the symbols of freedom. It wasn’t for a lack of evidence. Wildlife agents found the carcasses and sent them to a lab to be tested. results showed that the cause was manmade. The investigators also received tips after offering a $25,000 reward.
Since there was no foul play, one theory suggested the eagles might have ingested a pesticide. Another group of five deceased eagles found in Delaware in March suggested a pattern.
Despite all that, investigators haven’t been able to pinpoint a specific cause, or a culprit.
