The first eaglet born to the Decorah Eagles in 2012 was found dead Sunday morning.

The Raptor Resource Project announced on Facebook Tuesday that D12 was found electrocuted at the base of a power pole.

The power company modified that pole and others in the area on Sunday and Monday to make them raptor safe.
