LITTLE ROCK, AR - A Louisiana man was found guilty today on a misdemeanor charge of using a restricted pesticide after a jury could not come to a decision on three related felony counts of witness tampering in the death of a bald eagle.

Alfred M. Craft of West Monroe, Louisiana, previously pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor in the bird's death.  During the trial Craft admitted that a bald eagle and black vulture ingested Aldicarb, a restricted pesticide known also as Temix, that he was using to attract and kill what he called "nuisance animals" on his farm in Izard County.  He also said that he strangled the dying eagle, a federally-protected species.
