Summary: Three golden eagles were caught in separate snare traps over the past few days. The only one to survive was an eagle that was tangled in a snare trap (someone had cut the snare, but left the bird to wander with the cable embedded in its wing and shoulder). The first eagle found was delivered to the MT Raptor Conservation Center dead on arrival. The third eagle had to be euthanized at the trap due to extensive injuries it sustained.
