Division of Wildlife Resources offers reward for killing of golden eagle in county

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is asking for the public's help in finding a poacher that killed a golden eagle northwest of the Price airport sometime in the past month.

Golden eagles are year-around residents of the Price area. They often perch on power poles, making them easy targets for irresponsible shooters. Wildlife is the common property of the people of Utah and we share a stewardship for its conservation, said a DWR press release.

Anyone with information about this crime can call Lieutenant Carl Gramlich at 435-820-6011, or the help stop poaching hotline at 1-800-662-3337. Callers may be eligible for a reward of $500 and the callers identity will remain anonymous.

Bennett hails President Bush's decision to lift executive ban on offshore exploration

Senator Bob Bennett made the following statement on July 14 after President Bush announced his decision to lift the executive ban on offshore exploration in the outer continental shelf that has been in place since 1990.

"The ban on offshore exploration is a relic put in place at a time of significant technological problems that have long since been solved. Hurricane Katrina proved to us that offshore drilling is far safer than we thought. I applaud the president's decision and hope that we will soon see Congress pass balanced legislation like the Gas Price Reduction Act so exploration can begin. If we don't take this first step, there will be even more years to wait," he said.
