State wildlife officers are seeking information related to the poaching of a bald eagle last month in Missaukee County.
The eagle was found dead Feb. 4 in Enterprise Township, about three miles west of Houghton Lake and 115 miles north of Lansing. Investigators initially thought the eagle may have been electrocuted because it was found near power lines. But further examination found the bird died from a gunshot wound.
Bald eagles are protected under state and federal law.
Anyone with information pertaining to the investigation is asked to call the Department of Natural Resources at (800) 292-7800.
