This beautiful golden eagle was released back to the wild on Sunday, September 25, 2016.
This golden eagle arrived at LTWC this summer, emaciated and unable to fly properly. Our veterinarian, Dr. Kevin Willitts, examined the eagle and determined that it had no broken bones, which was welcome news.
Our first step in rehabilitating him was to help him gain weight. We intubated him initially, then once he was able to eat on his own, began to feed him a regular diet of meat, just as he would eat in the wild.
