The fatal squirrel?

Our city council has been considering some restrictions around the local eagles nest which I commented on in a letter to the editor.  The letter basically summarized some of the posts in this blog.  I did mention a photo of the eagle carrying a bedraggled squirrel which may have been poisoned.  This is the picture.  The day after this was taken, all three eagles became very sick.  The baby did not survive.
