TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A 32-year-old Oklahoma man has admitted to illegally offering to sell eagle and hawk feathers to an undercover agent.

Brian K. Stoner of Ponca City, Okla., pleaded guilty Monday to two misdemeanor violations of the Lacey Act for selling feathers from migratory birds protected by federal law. His sentencing is set for Oct. 7.

Prosecutors contend Stoner was at a Lawrence home in 2009 where he met with an undercover agent of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Stoner admitted in his plea deal he tried to sell eagle parts, including a tail feather fan. He also admitted offering to sell the undercover agent a native American dress "bustle" made of hawk feathers.
