Thanks for the link Josiah,

One thing to remember about the repository, redistribution is one of its purposes, but it is also like a morgue/CSI for eagle deaths- That's why they won't guarantee what kind of shape things will be in because if they are suspicious they will do autopsies, and they usually do at least some bloodwork (test for west nile and what not).
The eagle is the symbol of the united states (the turkey would've been better in my opinion or how 'bout the prairie chicken?) so the government is hypersensitive about threats and dangers to eagles.

Also as an update on the U.S. side of things, the Supreme Court turned down review of the Vasquez-Ramos case- two non-indians who were supposedly NAC members and had feathers for religious purposes- so the law is clear now that only tribal members can possess eagle feathers.
There is one case the Supreme Court may still take up, although it is unlikely; U.S. v Friday- which involves an Arapaho who shot an eagle to use in a ceremony without a permit. I will post if a decision is made on that case.
