Wyo. Tribe Asks Judge To Reconsider Eagle Case

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming Indian tribe is asking a federal judge to reconsider a recent ruling that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service acted properly in prohibiting the tribe from killing bald eagles for religious purposes on its central Wyoming reservation.

The Northern Arapaho Tribe this week asked U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson of Cheyenne to change the ruling he entered earlier this month.

The Fish and Wildlife Service earlier this year granted the Northern Arapaho the nation’s first permit allowing it to kill up to two bald eagles a year for religious purposes.

But Johnson upheld the federal agency’s requirement that the Northern Arapaho couldn’t kill the birds on the Wind River Indian Reservation because of objections from the Eastern Shoshone Tribe, which shares the reservation.
