An adult bald eagle was found fatally shot several miles north of Cumberland, on Hazen Road along Evitts Creek.

Maryland's Natural Resources Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a bald eagle near Cumberland.

The bird was found Friday afternoon several miles north of town on Hazen Road along Evitts Creek. It had been shot and investigators say the bird - a mature adult -had been dead no more than a week.

Once endangered by pesticides, hunters, and habitat loss, bald eagles came off the federal endangered species list in 2007, and then repopulated enough in Maryland to come off the state's list 2010. But the birds are still protected by the Federal Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.

Violators can get a year in prison and a $100,000 fine.
