Yakama men plead guilty to killing eagles

Yakima, Washington (AP) July 2010

Two White Swan men pleaded guilty in federal court in Yakima to killing bald eagles and conspiring to and sell bald eagle and golden eagle feathers.

Court documents say the two 23-year-old Yakima tribal members, Alfred L. Hawk Jr. and William R. Wahsise, killed wild horses to attract and capture the birds.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports wildlife agents seized dozens of eagle tails and wings last year from the men.

They could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when they are sentenced Oct. 13.
