Michael Rogers, 51, told investigators that he intended to bury the eagle's tendons in an Indian mound near a campground on International Speedway Boulevard In Daytona Beach, Fla., because someone poisoned the bird.

Police found Rogers on March 30 skinning the bird's head, Local 6 News reported.

Local 6 News reported that Rogers is licensed to handle the bald eagle but not to dismember them after they're dead.

Rogers faces a $500 fine or 60 days in jail.
