DECORAH, Iowa - A bald eagle that was part of a Decorah family of birds watched by millions of Internet viewers has been electrocuted.
The bald eagle, fitted with a satellite transmitter and known as D14, died Monday near Rockford. That's about 50 miles southwest of the nest where it was born at the Decorah Fish Hatchery.
Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports the eagle was found at the base of a power pole.
D14 is the second known death of the 14 eagles hatched at the Decorah nest, where a camera set up by the Raptor Resource Project streams the birds' actions over the Internet.
Raptor Resource Project director Bob Anderson found the bird after transmitter data showed no movement.
Anderson says the death demonstrates the dangers faced by raptors.
