SODDY DAISY — The shooting of two bald eagles have struck a patriotic nerve in the Tennessee Valley. Wildlife officers found one of the eagles in Hamilton County. The other was discovered in Monroe County. Both survived and are recovering, before being released into the wild.
An $11,000 dollar reward in each case is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the shooter or shooters responsible.
The first, a fully grown bald eagle, was shot down along the Tennessee River in Soddy Daisy the last week of March.
