Police investigate deaths of rare sea eagles

Police are investigating the suspicious deaths of two rare sea eagles in the West Bohemian region near the border with Germany. The dead eagles were found within a week of each other in the Tachov region, the last on December 25, with police now suspecting poison might have been used. The bodies have been sent for tests. The first instance did not raise suspicions since the eagle and a dead fox were found beside each other with the possibility raised that neither survived a fight between them. The rare eagles are known to have bred for more than a decade in the region surrounding the border town of Rozvadov.
