CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A lawsuit between the Northern Arapaho tribe and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service over the tribe’s permit to kill bald eagles for religious purposes is on hold for 60 days while both sides consider implications of a new Wyoming law.

Wyoming last month changed its law to allow falconers with proper permits to take eagles.

The new law also may allow the Northern Arapaho tribe to capture or kill bald eagles outside the Wind River Indian Reservation for use in its annual Sun Dance.

The tribe last year received the nation’s first permit allowing it to kill bald eagles for religious purposes. The tribe sued the federal agency because the permit didn’t allow killing eagles on the Wind River Indian Reservation, which it shares with the Eastern Shoshone Tribe.
