BENTON, Ark. -- Increased human activity near a nest in Saline County is jeopardizing the safety of a pair of bald eagles and nestlings. Not only is the well-being of the eagles at risk, but the public’s safety is in jeopardy because motorists are parking along the narrow highway.

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, have instructed the public to stop parking along Arkansas Highway 229 in Saline County to view the eagle nest. The USFWS originally had a 330-foot no disturbance zone around the nest.
