DNR searching for nest of bald eagle found shot in Dubois Co.

DUBOIS CO., IN (WFIE) - Indiana DNR officials are in a race to find the nest of a bald eagle that was found shot in Dubois County.

They've checked several already, but to no luck. DNR officers say other eagles at the lake have been checked and are safe.

Officials say if there's only one parent, there could be three more bald eagles that die in the process. They also say the location of the nest will narrow their search as the eagle could have flown up to 30 miles to wear it was located.

Lieutenant Duane Englert says they've had lots of calls of people irritated from what happened, and he says they aren't the only ones.

There is a possibility of jail time for the person responsible for shooting the eagle.

If you have any information, you can contact DNR.
