Default fine over eagle death

Nev. wind farm could face fine over eagle death

.—An eastern Nevada wind farm could face a fine of up to $200,000 over the death of a golden eagle.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is investigating the bird's death at the Spring Valley Wind Farm near the Utah border, 350 miles east of Reno, spokesman Jeannie Stafford said.

San Francisco-based Pattern Energy, owner of the 152-megawatt wind energy project that sells power to Las Vegas-based NV Energy, turned over the dead eagle to federal authorities within 36 hours of its discovery in February.

Despite reporting the death, the wind farm could face a fine because it does not hold a federal "take" permit that would allow the incidental death of a golden or bald eagle, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported (http://bit.ly/Yvz3qs ).

Eagles receive special protection under federal law.

Made me think about an incident we had here a couple years ago.

We were keeping the bantam chickens in the fenced yard with the dogs. We heard a ruckus and looked outside to find a Red-Tail Hawk trying to make off with one of the chickens. The border collie raced out in the yard to investigate and ran right toward the commotion. The hawk quickly took flight upon seeing the dog running towards him but I have to wonder; what would be the consequences if she would have caught the hawk?

According the the disclaimer on the DVD I could face a $250,000 fine for showing a Disney movie to my 3rd grade class.

That's not the same thing. Not unless you're the subject of a ongoing criminal investigation.

Guess it is time to place shovels at the bottom of the towers. Where are all the tree huggers? They wanted these windmills. Maybe we should shut them all down?

One last question....

HOW MUCH OF MY TAX MONEY IS GOING TO BE WASTED ON THIS STUPIDITY?

I would imagine it was an "environmentalist" in the first place... a hard lesson learned!

It's also "natural selection" for birds with no peripheral vision!
