$182 is a RIDICULOUSLY small fine for killing a bald eagle! they should of got the hammer and i mean atleast $500 and they should be made to help a nature preserve in taking care of injured animals!!!

Those kids may have been some good kids that made a mistake. I can understand the leaniency in the fines but they should have had some public service or wildlife service penalties in addition to the fines and reprimands.

they are young and made a mistake, granted a stupid mistake, but I think the fines costing $1,182 is suffitiant for that age, but I think they should definately have a lot of community service.

Everyone knows your not supposed to kill bald eagles.
I think I learned it in school even.
