ROMNEY, W.Va. (AP) - A Pendleton County man loses his hunting privileges for 10 years after pleading guilty to charges related to a bald eagle's death.

The Division of Natural Resources said Wednesday that 41-year-old Chris Armentrout of Franklin also was fined $1,500.

Capt. Tom Stuckey with the DNR's Law Enforcement Section says Armentrout pleaded guilty earlier this month in magistrate court to illegal possession of a bald eagle.

Stuckey says the DNR began an investigation after receiving information from an informant that an individual had bragged about killing a bald eagle and disposing of it.

The carcass of an immature bald eagle was found in a small stream.
