19 Bald Eagles Die After Eating Fish Waste in Alaska

Fifty or more eagles swarmed into the truck, whose retractable fabric cover was open, after the truck was moved outside the plant, said Brandon Saito, a biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service who coordinated the recovery operation.,2933,322313,00.html
