Whitw-tailed eagle killed by wind turbine

This happened December 27. I'm not sure this link works oust side Sweden. It was a 4,5 year old eagle that was cut i half by the wind turbine. It sadly happens from time to time here in Sweden.

Re: Whitw-tailed eagle killed by wind turbine

The page loads just fine for me. (The machine translation is a bit sketchy . . .) It's definitely sad. The article also makes a good point that a larger issue with wind turbines is the loss of habitat and the barriers they create to the movement of wildlife. But it sounds as though scientists are aware of the issues and are working to have the turbines placed is locations that will have the least impact on wildlife.
