Bald Eagle #21-0677 update

Sadly, Bald Eagle #21-0677 was humanely euthanized on September 17. Despite the intensive care the veterinary and rehabilitation staff provided during the past five months, involving numerous techniques and medications, the eagle's carpal wounds repeatedly opened and showed signs of infection. Radiographs taken on September 17 indicated that the skeletal structures on the bird's left wing were becoming very affected, likely suffering from the associated wound infection. This condition combined with a failure to respond to various therapies resulted in a grave prognosis for full recovery, and humane euthanasia was selected.
