Library screens International Wildlife Film Fest winner

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a free screening of "Poached," the Best of Festival Award winner from the 2015 International Wildlife Film Festival, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 3 in Library Hall. The film by Timothy Wheeler asks, "What happens when a boyhood hobby grows into a destructive obsession?"

"Poached" brings viewers inside the bizarre underworld of illegal wild bird egg collecting by following convicted egg offenders as they evade an army of bird lovers and wildlife crime police during Operation Easter in Britain. Egg thieves are motivated not by money but by desire for the beauty of the egg and the thrill of the chase. Thousands of eggs confiscated in police raids have been found strapped beneath beds, below floorboards and in secret rooms.
