A bald eagle in Arlington,WA has died of severe lead poisoning on the same day Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke reversed last-minute action by President Obama to ban lead ammunition and fish tackle on national wildlife refuges. The order reverses a decision by the Obama administration to phase out use of lead ammunition and fishing tackle on wildlife refuges by 2022.

This law will no doubt affect birds in Canada due to migration connectivity.
