There's been an increase in the number of eagles dying in southern B-C and a wildlife group wants B-C Hydro to do more to save the birds. Rob Hope with the Orphan Wildlife Rehabilitation Society says hundreds of eagles come in to the area looking for food and 47 have been electrocuted this year when their wings touched two power lines. (Just two of the birds shocked have survived being electrocuted. A B-C Hydro spokeswoman says the company is working to mitigate the problem.)
