OK… I admit when I saw the article about an indian (I refuse to say Native American… more on that in the next entry) skinning the head of a bald eagle that I thought this would be some story about indian ritual challenging the law like that case about peyote a few years back.
The guy did say he was preparing the eagle for a ritual, but this is why he was arrested.
Local 6 News reported that Rogers is licensed to handle the bald eagle but not to dismember them after they’re dead.
Apparently he can do whatever he wants with the carcass as long as it remains whole. And he has LICENSE to do this! And the bird gets an autopsy.
Does the quincy in question have a license for that?
