LAWRENCE, Kan.– An Oklahoma man is accused of selling eagle and hawk feather illegally to an undercover agent with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Authorities say that type of sale violates federal law.

Officials say 32-year-old Brian K. Stoner, of Ponca City, pleaded guilty in federal court in Topeka on Monday to two misdemeanor counts.

He admitted in a plea deal to trying to sell the eagle feathers as part of a Native American dance costume.
