The Killing of Bald Eagles on Maryland’s Eastern Shore

At least 30 bald eagles were been killed on Maryland’s Eastern Shore in ten years, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s a long history of these carbofuran poisonings on the Delmarva Peninsula, which have continued to happen long after the Environmental Protection Agency banned the toxic pesticide. Award-winning journalist Donna Cole, who has spent over six years on this story, explains the sordid history of these killings, why they’ve happened and what’s being done about it.
