Ten years have passed since the discovery of the first two poisoned Imperial Eagles in Hungary

On March 19, 2005, we received a report about a pair of Imperial Eagles found dead near Jászárokszállás. Experts of MME arrived at the scene and diagnosed probable poisoning. Since MME’s establishment in 1974, there has not been any records of poisoned Imperial Eagles in Hungary. The poisoning rampage has been going on for a decade now and claimed the lives of 76 Imperial Eagles, 101 White-tailed Eagles and more than 600 additional protected and strictly protected birds backed up by evidence, but fortunately human fatality has not occurred yet.
