Birds covered in oil reported along WA, OR beaches

Multiple agencies investigate reports of oiled birds on the Washington and Oregon coasts and urge public to report sightings but avoid contact.

The remains of the three gray wolves, two golden eagles, a cougar and a coyote were located by Oregon State troopers in the Lightning Creek drainage, a tributary to the Imnaha River, near the Idaho/Oregon state line and about 11 miles northeast of the town of Imnaha, Oregon.

Through testing and examination, wildlife forensics experts determined the animals were all poisoned.

Oregon state law prohibits the killing of gray wolves, and eagles are federally protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
