4 eagles shot dead in Iowa's Davis County


MOULTON, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say they're looking for who may have shot and killed four bald eagles in Davis County.

In March, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources requested help in catching those responsible for the shooting of a bald eagle while it fed on a deer in Davis County. Now officials say three other bald eagles, a red-tailed hawk and more than 12 deer were found shot and killed near the towns of Moulton and Mark.

State conservation officer Bob Stuchel says the second eagle was killed while feeding on deer. Two more eagles were shot while in cottonwood trees.

Conservation officers say they have no motive in the shootings and no arrests have been made.
