There is shock and outright anger in northwest Harris County after the killing of a bald eagle.
"My son came out and I told him what happened," says resident Dale Jozwiak. "He was about in tears."
Witnesses said that a group of teenagers who live in the Woodland Oaks neighborhood are responsible for shooting the national symbol from the top of a tree next to Whiteoak Bayou.
It happened near Highway 290 and Fairbanks North Houston Road.
Eric Garcia and his father were exercising along a nearby trail when they say they came across the bird eating fish.
"We had to just sit there for at least a couple of minutes and just watch it. It was just amazing," says Garcia. "You don't see that every day."
Eric says they left to finish their exercise, and when they returned the eagle was no longer in the tree but lying on the ground.
