Bald Eagle Shot in Manistee County Put Down

An eagle shot in Manistee County over the weekend had to be put down.

The DNR says the 2-year-old female bald eagle was shot by waterfowl hunters Saturday.

The bird was then taken to a rehab center, but surgery was deemed too risky.

Local fishing guides say they saw the bird get shot.

They identified two men from downstate as the shooters.

The DNR is sending the report the prosecutor for possible charges.
