BUKIDNON NEWS | MALAYBALAY CITY – A man in Bukidnon has reportedly been fined Php 100,000.00 as penalty for killing and subsequently cooking a young male Philippine Eagle.

The Bukidnon man was identified as one Bryan Balaon.

A Malaybalay City court ruled that Balaon was found guilty of violating Republic Act 9147, also called Wildlife Conservation and Protection Act. The said act prohibits the killing of a critically endangered species such as the Philippine Eagle.

Balaon’s penalty of Php 100,000.00 is the lowest possible one. Under the said law, anyone caught killing the rare Philippine Eagle should be punishable by imprisonment of between 6 to 12 years or slapped with a fine of between Php 100,000 and Php 1 Million.

Reports say that no deadline for payment of the said fine was indicated on the court ruling.
