  • Federal appeals court orders American Indian to stand trial for shooting bald eagle

    By Ben Neary

    An American Indian who shot a bald eagle for use in a tribal religious ceremony must stand trial, a federal appeals court has ruled.

    A three-judge panel of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver on May 8 reversed a 2006 lower court ruling that dismissed a criminal charge against Winslow Friday, a Northern Arapaho Indian who has acknowledged shooting a bald eagle in 2005 during the tribe’s Sun Dance.
