Federal authorities are looking for more information regarding two eagles that were shot on the Navajo Nation.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says a bald eagle and golden eagle were found shot with their tail feathers removed earlier this month.

The bald eagle died of its injuries, while the golden eagle’s left wing tip had to be amputated.

Both are protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act along with the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

The feds are offering a $3,000 reward for more information.
