Court rules on eagle uses

Associated Press/The Denver Post, Joe Amon
Wildlife repository specialist Dennis Wiist checks an eagle at the National Eagle Repository in Commerce City in August 2009. The repository receives eagle bodies from wherever they fall and helps process them so Native American religious practitioners have the requisite eagle feathers and talons, for their ceremonies. An appeals court has ruled that eagle parts and feathers may only be used in religious ceremonies by federally recognized Indian tribes.
