The Maine Warden Service says a bald eagle found dead east of Moosehead Lake last month had been shot.

The female eagle was found dead on April 15 beside a logging road in Days Academy Grant. It was taken to Avian Haven in Freedom, where an examination showed it had been shot. It is believed to have been killed in early April.

The warden service is looking for any information related to the killing.
