Over the last years, several White-tailed Eagles and Eastern Imperial Eagles have been illegally killed in Austria.
The last victim was a young (only several month old) White-tailed Eagle killed in the “Weinviertel” area in the north-east of Austria. This is a known area for illegal raptor killing and other White-tailed Eagles and Eastern Imperial eagles have been killed there. The real number is probably higher than what is officially known because not every dead eagle is found – and for sure other raptors like Common Buzzards are also killed there.
