Eagle put down after wind farm accident  

http://au.news.yahoo.com

The Tasmanian wind power company, Roaring 40s, says a wind turbine at its Woolnorth farm injured a wedge-tailed eagle two weeks ago.

The eagle’s wing was damaged and it had to be put down by a vet.

An autopsy has been performed on the bird, proving it is the third endangered eagle in five months to have died after flying into a wind turbine.

Prior to these deaths, there had not been any cases since 2002.

Roaring 40s spokesman Josh Bradshaw says the company is concerned.

He says it will meet with the environment and resources departments to find ways of limiting the deaths of endangered species.

The company also says there have been 80 eagle deaths this year.

But it says only three were cause by wind turbines and more than 50 through contact with buildings, cars and power lines.
