ARE YOU SERIOUS …
So much for the federal Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has issued a permit to the Native American tribe Northern Arapaho’s to kill American Bald Eagles on the grounds of religious purposes. UNREAL. I guess we can all be thankful that there are no Myans alive today practicing human sacrifices. Under the Feds logic, it would be ok to kill humans for religious purposes as well.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has taken the unusual step of issuing a permit allowing an American Indian tribe in Wyoming to kill two bald eagles for religious purposes.
The agency’s decision comes after the Northern Arapaho Tribe filed a federal lawsuit last year contending the refusal to issue such permits violates tribal members’ religious freedom. Although thousands of American Indians apply for eagle feathers and carcasses from a federal repository, permits allowing the killing of bald eagles are exceedingly rare, according to both tribal and legal experts on the matter.
