Bald Eagles Are Dying In Utah

The Salt Lake Tribune reports  that Bald Eagles in northern Utah are dying at an increasing rate. Twelve have died  since December first from  unknown causes.

Six died or were euthanized in rehabilitation centers after suffering from head tremors, lower extremity paralysis and digestive issues. Six were found dead

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) is exploring all possible causes is and is waiting for necropsy results on bald eagles sent to the National Wildlife Health Center. Some  preliminary tests showed the birds were suffering from lead poisoning but this is probably not the main cause of death.
