A symbol of the United States. A majestic and protected species. I simply can't understand this way of thinking. Who would want to shoot an eagle? Two eagles have been found shot recently, one had to be put down because of its injuries. The other, younger eagle had been shot in the leg and is recovering. They found that one in the Tucannon. And again, because people have to misuse firearms, it's another arrow in the quiver for gun-haters to make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to own and enjoy firearms.

Trivia: Before it was decided that the eagle should be our national bird, Benjamin Franklin suggested that it be what?

Answer: The turkey, because they were plentiful and a good source of food for Americans.
