Irving Police Seek Thieves Who Stole Wooden Eagle From Campion Trail 

IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) - Yellow, painted wooden claws are all that remain of a beloved eagle statue enjoyed by many who walk Campion Trail.

Thieves used some sort of saw or tool to separate the eagle's body from his feet; leaving a space as empty as their conscience in its place.
