The Pennsylvania Game Commission has charged a Sharon woman with selling feathers of protected birds on the Internet.

Game commission officials say Candas Lynn Rohrdanz is charged with unlawful selling and possession of wildlife parts of protected birds.

She faces fines ranging from $75 to $200 for nine of the charges and from $100 to $300 for a 10th alleged violation.

Game commission officials say they bought from Rohrdanz feathers from a red-shouldered hawk, crow, blackbird, Canada goose, gull, blue jay, barred owl, turkey and wild turkey.

The Associated Press could not immediately locate a listed telephone number for Rohrdanz.
