Golden eagle stolen

Ontario Provincial Police are looking for suspects following the theft of a golden eagle from an aviary about 75 kilometres west of Toronto.

Investigators say the eagle was taken from the facility northeast of Acton, Ont., some time between Jan. 27 and Jan. 28.

Police say the eagle, known as Riff-Raff, is worth about $15,000.

The eagle is described as brown with white flecks and approximately three years old, 76 centimetres tall and weighs about six kilograms.

Police say the eagle is a show and demonstration bird, but it is not a pet and should not be approached.

They believe the thief had extensive knowledge and training to be able to handle the bird and say there are no indications it was an act of protest.
