KANSAS CITY — Authorities are investigating the recent shooting deaths of two bald eagles in northwest Missouri.

The Missouri Conservation Department said in a release Friday that one bald eagle was found shot to death in January in Caldwell County. The other bald eagle was found shot to death in February in Clay County.

The department says a reward is being offered for information leading to a conviction in the case. It's a state and federal offense to shoot a bald eagle.

Anyone with information about the case can call the Missouri Operation Game Thief hotline, 800-392-1111.
