The Raptor Resource Project out of Decorah confirmed yesterday that one of its eagles was killed. The group says that the eagle was found along side a road between Maynard and Westgate Iowa.

Officials say that the bird, D25,  was likely scavenging on an animal carcass when it was hit by a vehicle. The eagle's nestmate, D24, is safe some 40 miles away.
