Wedge-tailed Eagles

A East Gippsland man has been charged to-day with poisoning 136 Wedge-tailed
Eagles.

The poisoning is thought to have happened over several years when baits were
impregnated

with poison.

He faces a possible 6 months imprisonment and maximin fines of $7928 per
eagle and

$792 for each additional bird.

It is believed he is not the owner of the property where the birds were
found.
His passport has been confiscated.

Throw the book at him !!!!
