The body of Philippine hawk eagle
will be preserved and displayed at the Albay Wildlife Park in Legazpi City, Baylon said.
MGen Vilarmino informed reporters that the Philippine hawk eagle
, estimated to be five months old was found by government troops assessing the effects of super-typhoon Yolanda at the hinterlands of Pinabacdao-Sta Rita, Samar.
A television report, which initially misidentified the hawk eagle
as the critically endangered Philippine eagle, quoted the bus conductor as saying he was not aware that transporting wild birds was illegal.
He helped nurse the hawk eagle
until its gunshot wound healed.
When police raided his home they found African hawk eagles
, jackal buzzards, goshawks and American kestrels.
Climbers could see a range of different wildlife, including elephants, buffalo, eland, black and white colobus monkeys, augur buzzards, mountain hawk eagles
and white-naped ravens.
Similarly, a highly pathogenic avian influenza A H5N1 virus from crested hawk eagles
smuggled into Europe by air travel has been isolated and characterized (24); fortunately, however, screening of human and avian contacts indicated that no dissemination had occurred.
