From Deroy Murdock's op-ed in Newsday:

"Lethal take" is Washington-speak for federally approved eagle slaughter. Precise eagle-kill numbers are tough to determine, in part because "other animals gobble the carcasses almost immediately," the Competitive Enterprise Institute's R.J. Smith explains. About 67 golden eagles are estimated to be killed annually just at Northern California's Altamont Pass wind farm.
