Viennese wild animal experts are investigating after an imperial eagle was discovered cut to pieces close to wind turbines in Burgenland last weekend.

Burgenland People's Party (ÖVP) Agriculture Secretary Werner Falb-Meixner today (Weds) announced in reaction to the incident near Weiden am See in Neusiedl district that wind farms were constantly checked to ensure no endangered animals were harmed.

Falb-Meixner said flight corridors of birds were considered when new wind farms were planned, adding that it was impossible to ensure that no animals would be harmed.

The eagle was discovered by a hunter on Saturday. Experts suspect it got into a rotor blade at the wind turbine as its body was cut into two parts in one clear cut.
