For The Record

September 26, 2009

Bald eagle killing: An article in Monday's Section A about a Native American facing criminal charges for killing a bald eagle reported that federal laws protecting eagles provide an exception for Native Americans, who can acquire dead birds from a national repository or may apply for a permit to "take," or kill, an eagle for a ceremony. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issues such permits only when the person can demonstrate that the taking of the bird is part of the ceremony. If the ceremony only requires eagle body parts, a permit is not issued.
