Red-tailed Hawk #20-1294 was found down on the ground in Staunton, Virginia, at the end of May 2020. The bird was unable to fly, and a rescuer was able to safely contain the bird and transport it to the Wildlife Center.
On August 6, Wildlife Center president Ed Clark released Bald Eaglets #20-1128 and #20-1129 in Stafford County, at the location where they were first rescued earlier this year. The eaglets' rescuers were able to attend the release, along with several reporters.
Black Bear yearling #20-2698 has been doing well during the past few days; the veterinary team reports that the bear is eating well, and is able to move around the bear pen where he is housed.
The goal of the Center is “to treat to release” – to restore patients to health and return as many as possible to the wild. In rare instances, the Center has the opportunity to track eagles after their release. Click here to follow these former eagle patients.
