This is a great time of year to see eagles in Missouri. However, some loser (or losers) took advantage of the majestic symbols of America migrating across the state and shot one of the birds killing it near Rolla. Authorities are now asking for your help in finding whoever did this.

Someone on the Missouri sub-Reddit alerted me to this awful crime. The Missouri Department of Conservation confirmed on X (artist formerly known as Twitter) that this sad crime did in fact happen.

It's been awhile since I've been through Rolla, but I believe that Route Z is north of Rolla in approximately this area.

The status update by the Missouri Department of Conservation says that a neighbor in the area heard a gunshot this morning. If you have any information about who might have done this, make sure to contact the Missouri Department of Conservation immediately. My guess is whoever is stupid enough to perpetrate this crime is also dumb enough to brag about it. Let's bust them.
