The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is asking for the public's help in its investigation of a bald eagle death in Mecosta County.
DNR officials say the eagle was discovered in a tree in Grant Township on March 1.
The bird was the victim of a traumatic injury.
Lab tests at Michigan State University could help determine the eagle's cause of death.
The penalty for killing a bald eagle is up to 90 days in jail, a fine ranging from $100 to $1,000, or both; and reimbursement to the state of $1,500 per eagle.
Anyone with information can call the DNR at (800) 292-7800.
