The attention directed toward the city of Pittsburgh and its desire to protect a pair of eagles and the three eggs in their nest has prompted the erection of signs prohibiting anyone from going to within one hundred feet of the nest.
And now, a Parker man has been fined for ignoring or missing those signs.
The man was fined 75 dollars after the Pennsylvania Game Commission filed a complaint against him. He claims he never saw the signs.
The nest first appeared last fall in the city of Pittsburgh’s Hays neighborhood, and has been an immensely popular subject of online observation. Last month, many watched as the eagles survived an attempt at an egg theft by a marauding raccoon.
