HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A St. Mary's County man faces criminal and civil charges for purportedly killing deer illegally, according to Maryland's Natural Resources Police.
ANNAPOLIS (AP) — Two Maryland men have been convicted of killing bald eagles in unrelated cases, state wildlife authorities announced yesterday.
Only the eagle and vulture are protected species, but Mr. Long would have been prohibited from firing a gun from his porch in any case, Sgt. Turner said.
Sgt. Turner said the dead bald eagle was immature, meaning it did not yet have the species' distinctive white head, so Mr. Long might not have known he was shooting a bald eagle.
