Troopers cite man for running down, killing bald eagles

A 28-year-old Oregon man has been accused of running over several bald eagles feeding on a roadway in Dutch Harbor, killing two and injuring two others.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports that Alaska State Troopers cited the man after a witness reported the act to Unalaska police. The troopers took control of the case.

Witnesses say a Ford truck hit the eagles near the city’s landfill Sunday.

Troopers cited the man for using a motorized vehicle to harass or molest game and accused him of accelerating his truck through several bald eagles.

The man is scheduled to be arraigned in Unalaska District Court June 30.
