LOUISIANA (NBC33) —
UNION PARISH - The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries are trying to figure out who shot a bald eagle. The shooting happened earlier this month. The eagle had to have the tip of its right wing amputated and won't be able to fly. It's being treated in the Wildlife Hospital at LSU's vet school. After that, it'll be placed in a zoo or a wildlife sanctuary. It's illegal to shoot a bald eagle. If you have any information to help investigators, give the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries a call.
CADDO PARISH - A man suspected in the deaths of three people whose bodies were found behind a north Texas barn will soon return to Texas to face charges. For now, Thomas Taunton is being held in Shreveport in connection with the deaths. He was arrested Thursday in Stonewall, Louisiana after his truck broke down. The victims were reported missing Thursday from their home northeast of Dallas. The bodies were found Saturday a few miles from the home. The 52 year-old has signed paperwork to be returned to Texas.
ASCENSION PARISH - There's a new logo at St. Amant High School after the school held a contest to redesign the face of the Gators. A decision to change to logo was made after deciding it looked too much like the University of Florida's logo. This winning design put together by the high school's band director.
