Austrian police are investigating after two rare White-tailed Eagles died after being fed meat poisoned with a powerful nerve poison at Gänserndorf in Austria.
Both hunting groups and animal-rights activists have condemned the killing which used meat treated with Carbofuran which has been banned within the EU since 2008.
The bird is not only part of the national symbol of Austria – but it is also only recently been reintroduced after a 50 year conservation programme after the last White-tailed Eagle died out shortly after the Second World War.
The WWF Only recently proudly announced that White-tailed Eagle were now back in the country in record numbers – with 85 including 14 pairs confirmed to be living in the country.
But The rising number seems to have caused some frictions with certain locals with complaints about the Eagles taking young game and also in some cases domestic pets like cats or small dogs.
In the same region six White-tailed Eagles and three Eastern Imperial Eagles have been poisoned.
Local hunting chief Peter Lebersorger said: "We will do everything we can to catch those responsible and make sure they are punished."
