Bald eagles were often hunted for “sport,” and for the so-called protection of fishing grounds. DDT also was a reason for their population decrease, as it affected the thickness of their eggshells. Bald eagles remain most abundant in Alaska and Canada, though their numbers have increased across their ranges.
Bald eagles were hunted for a variety of reasons. Some bald eagles were hunted for sport while some other people hunted bald eagles because they were perceived as threats. More than 100,000 bald eagles were killed in Alaska between 1917 and 1953 because fisherman feared they were a threat to the salmon population.
