Two area farmers enter guilty pleas for taking eagles

Two Sugar Camp men pleaded guilty last Wednesday to federal charges of illegal possession of American bald eagles following a probe that began in 2007 into the deaths of dozens of wildlife from poisoning, prosecutors said.

Alvin Sowinski, 65, and his son Paul Sowinski, 46,  were each convicted of one misdemeanor count in a U.S. District Court in Madison.

The two farmers used poison-laced baits designed to kill predators in order to improve deer hunting, according to the complaint.
