Arizona man sentenced for selling eagle parts

PHOENIX -- A Tuba City man has been sentenced to 30 days in prison for illegally selling golden eagle and other migratory bird parts.

Federal prosecutors say 46-year-old Patrick Scott also was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Phoenix to five months' home confinement, one year of supervised release and fined $2,000.

Scott pleaded guilty in the case last December.

He was accused of illegally offering to sell online a golden eagle fan for $950 in January 2008.

Prosecutors say Scott sold, purchased and-or offered to sell other migratory bird parts from species including bald eagle, red-tailed hawk, golden eagle, crested caracara, anhinga and rough-legged hawk between July 2007 and February 2009.

Authorities say golden eagles and other migratory birds are protected by federal laws.
