Justice for Bald Eagles Poisoned to Death

eagle-by-BryanHanson

Target: Eric T. Schneiderman, Attorney General

Goal: Seek the maximum penalty for farmers who allegedly killed two bald eagles with poisoned carcasses.

Two bald eagles died after consuming poisoned sheep carcasses, allegedly set out by farmers. Their deaths are a huge setback in efforts to restore this threatened species. Demand the maximum penalty for the people responsible for this great loss.

Carbofuran is known to be fatal in small quantities. In fact, The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) regulates the use of the insecticide due to its devastating impact on wildlife. This didn’t stop the three farmers who allegedly spread the liquefied substance onto sheep carcasses with the intention of killing predators. Two bald eagles took the bait and died shortly after.

The three men each face a felony charge of endangering the public health, safety or environment under the state’s Environmental Conservation Law. Sign below to demand the maximum penalty should these men be convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Schneiderman,

Two bald eagles died due to the deliberate actions of local farmers, reports claim. The eagles were poisoned by carbofuran, a highly regulated insecticide, when they ate tainted sheep carcasses. We demand the maximum penalty for the men responsible for this tragedy.

The bald eagle has made a tremendous comeback from the brink of extinction, largely due to the efforts of the DEC and Environmental Protection Agency. However, the illegal use of pesticides continues to threaten its existence. This crime must be met with aggressive consequences in order to protect this species.

History cannot repeat itself if this species is to survive. We demand the maximum penalty in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
