As restitution, I'd say hamstring the farker and stake him out for the wolves to eat....

I was going to make a pithy sort of throwaway about how awesome bald eagles are and maybe a 'Murica reference, and then read this and just got sick to my stomach.

Seriously, dude, WTF? Couldn't you just grow ditchweed and build underground meth labs like the rest of your backwoods neighbors?

That's why I use stem cells in my arts and crafts projects.

He wasn't even really doing it for the money.

FTFA: DNR law enforcement detectives said that Duncan was using the animals for a variety of reasons, including crafts, selling, or disposing of them, and stated that he was catching the animals because he could and "likes to do it."

F*cking nutter.  It's one thing to hunt for eating or making a winter coat, but this dude.  Nobody eats eagles or wolfmeat.

Even odds this guy beats his girlfriend/kids.

People like this infuriate me. I am a collector of antique and ethically sourced taxidermy and natural curiosities. I go to extreme lengths to verify that anything in my collection is either from prior to 1970 or was created utilizing animals that died naturally or accidentally. The only other acceptable source is utilizing pelts and hides of food animals or using the bodies of invasive species culled to protect delicate biospheres.

Most things don't require paperwork. Occasionally I may come across something I'd like for my cabinet that does require legal documentation. So I get it. And I make sure whoever I'm buying from has their documentation in line as well.

I'm constantly befuddled by the amount of people in the US who think it's okay to just do things like import bats without papers or take dead birds out of the woods. Never take dead birds out of the woods. Just don't mess with birds.

Hunting and fishing is regulated for a reason. Endangered animals are protected for a reason. The migratory bird act is there for a reason.

People who are too selfish to abide by the limits and laws in place to make sure we don't lose our natural resources and animals don't deserve to have them.

Real collectors collect responsibly. People like this guy just give those of us who collect or work with animal parts legally a bad reputation and make things harder for us down the line.

Wolf is actually really damn good.
I'd put it up there with venison for sure.
Way better than black bear.

Coyote though... yuck. I've tried a couple of times, but I can't even field dress one without gagging at the smell.

I made this guy out of stuffed animals once for a girlfriend.

/and by "made" I mean "bought a wolf plushy and an eagle plushy and gave them to one of our friends to sew together like Frankenstein."
//Girlfriend's nickname for me was Silverbolt, so it's not as weird as it sounds

Do not use any type of feathers.
They do not have to prove that you killed any birds to charge you if it is from a protected species.

Pro Tip #2

Do not plea bargain with this scum. Force him to accept all charges or you're going to trial. No sentencing recommendation except enjoy prison you POS.

That's correct, at least last I knew. What's more, they don't care if you've got many pictures of the molting birds flying over and on your land...

Yoopers, a rare and unusual breed.

That is correct.

If you want to use feathers, it's easy to get them from domestic farm birds like turkeys or domestic ducks and dye them. You can literally buy inexpensive bags of them at craft supply stores also.

As for meat/taxidermy it's legal if you have a hunting permit and want to work within the limits of whatever you can legally obtain.

Memorialized pets or using feathers from your  molting pet (legally obtained) exotic bird is also fine. Modern taxidermists frequently work with budgies because they are non-native to the US and commonly kept as pets and in zoos and die of natural causes all the time.

There are only maybe 2-4 native birds in the US that are not legally protected by some kind of major law. It includes everything from hunting them to taking a feather you find on the ground. Just don't.

Anyone dumb enough to think they can kill a bald eagle deserves to have the book thrown at them.

18 wolves and 3 bald eagles, among other animals.

This guy is a piece of crap. The bald eagles are only just getting decent numbers in Michigan again, and wolves are endangered in our state. I've lived in Michigan for 49 years, and in that time I've seen three wolves total and maybe six bald eagles (two mated pairs and an eaglet). And I've lived all over the state.

I seriously hope they take everything he owns, lock him up for a few years, and let all the other hicks know that this sort of behavior won't be tolerated in the state of Michigan.

Alternatively, we could take some of his skin, a couple fingers, some hair and a few other body parts and make them into a tacky decoration to hang on the wall.

More of a cross between perigrine falcon and califonia condor.
