(Harrisburg) -- State game officials say an investigation shows a second bald eagle's death in the past month was caused by a bullet wound.
The Game Commission says it made that determination after examining the carcass of a mature eagle found dead May 5 in western Pennsylvania's Butler County.
Earlier this week, the agency said it was looking into the shooting of a mature male bald eagle found injured in Cambria County on May 10.
It later died from those wounds.
The Game Commission says anyone with information should call 1-888-PGC-8001 and may be eligible for a reward.
Bald eagles are classified as threatened in the state.
They're no longer on the federal endangered species list.
