Sad news...just read this on Facebook
   A popular bald eagle born at Norfolk Botanical Garden had to be euthanized Saturday after being shot in Chesapeake.

Camellia, a 7-year-old male eagle, was shot in the southern part of the city near West and Benefit roads, according to Reese Lukei, research associate for the Center for Conservation Biology at the College of William & Mary.

The eagle was cared for by Virginia Beach SPCA because, Lukei said, it is licensed to care for birds.

“The X-ray showed over 20 pieces of buckshots in the bird," Lukei said. "The damage was so severe it wouldn’t have survived its injuries.”Camellia probably had a nest, Lukei said, so it affects his chicks as well.

"The male eagle is the main provider of the food that comes to the nest.”

Camellia had gained a following after his birth. Lukei said he put a satellite tracker on him in 2010, making him "world famous" because of a live webcam at Norfolk Botanical Garden.

"The day we banded, the bird was broadcast all around the world," he said. "We had millions of hits on that live webcam."

Until about two years ago, people were able to keep track of Camellia's movements through EagleTrak, a site Lukei created to track eagles' movements.
J
Lukei lost track of Camellia after the eagle's transmitter fell off in February 2015.

Because of his following, Lukei said he believes people are going to be "boiling mad" about his death.

According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service website, bald eagles are federally protected. Civil penalties for shooting an eagle are a maximum fine of $5,000 or a one-year prison sentence with $10,000, or no more than two years in prison for a second conviction. The website says that felony convictions could result in a maximum fine of $250,000 or a two-year prison sentence.

Camellia was born March 11, 2010, at the botanical garden. Lukei said he misidentified him at the time as a female, and when officials found he was a male, they just called him "Cammy."

"We are deeply saddened to hear that one of the eaglets born at the Garden in 2010 was killed over the weekend," said Kelly Welsh, botanical garden spokeswoman. "The fact that the death was by unnatural causes makes the situation even more heartbreaking."

Lukei called the shooting "disgusting."

"You cannot mistake a bald eagle for anything else," he said. "For somebody to just shoot a bird is just disgusting."
