”Concern for Eagles on National Eagle Day” – TPR’s In Focus – Jan. 10, 2024

On National Eagle Day and The Storyline book series, Geoscientist and researcher Mike McTee of Missoula, Montana, talks with In Focus host Carolyn Hutcheson about his research into how eagles are being poisoned by the lead from hunters’ bullets when the  raptors eat what hunters leave after killing deer and other game animals.  His book is “Wilted Wings, A Hunter’s Fight for Eagles.”  This is Part One of a two-part interview.  Part Two deals with state wildlife agencies and various organizations that are urging hunters to use copper bullets, since lead can get into the human food chain and cause devastating health effects.
