Golden eagle soars to freedom after 9 months of rehab [Video]

Epic footage of a Golden Eagle being released back into the wild where he was originally found in Arizona. The eagle had been grounded on the side of the road after sustaining an injury on February 28. The eagle rehabilitated by Wild Friends at Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah, and was released back into the wild on November 19. Brought back to Wild Friends in critical condition, Wild Friends staff were able to stabilize the eagle enough for onsite veterinarians to perform emergency surgery. X-rays had shown that his crop, a thin-walled pouch connected to the esophagus, was full of an unknown material. He was also treated for symptoms of lead poisoning. A second surgery was needed when the eagle’s crop came through the stitches, causing him to reside in intensive care for over a month. During that time, the eagle’s flight muscles atrophied, so once he recovered from the surgeries, it was time to make him capable of returning to his natural habitat. That meant several months of training in the 100-foot bird flight building at Best Friends. At first, the eagle could only fly one or two laps. By the time of his release, he was able to sustain flight between the higher perches for 8 laps with no breaks. Once ready for release, Best Friends contacted Arizona Game and Fish to ask for a release sight. Gunsight Point was chosen, as it was just 30 miles outside of Fredonia, where the eagle had been initially found. This gave Best Friends and Arizona Game and Fish staff a great view as the eagle was released. Thrilled to be back in the wild, he majestically soared before disappearing into the beautiful Arizona cliffs. Wild Friend offers the following tips should you encounter injured wildlife on the road: ▪️Find your closest wildlife rehab center at AHNow.org and call for assistance in real time, if possible. ▪️Most rehab centers will ask that you have an animal contained, so it would help if you can get the animal in a box for transport, using either a large net or a towel (whatever you have on hand). Take extra care around the beak and feet. ▪️Some centers have after hour numbers, but if your closest center does not have an after-hours number you can call Wild Friends for 24/7 assistance on transporting an animal and finding a center near you at (559) MED-WILD. ▪️Call your local Department of Wildlife Resources or Department of Natural Resources office for assistance if the animal is too dangerous or in a precarious position. ▪️Stay with the animal to prevent it moving from the scene or coming into contact with other animals. ▪️Keeping wildlife is not just dangerous, it’s illegal. You can be fined and possibly receive jail time for the offense. Wildlife centers provide a 48-hour grace period before seizing wildlife and charging a fine. In addition to its licensed wildlife facilities, Wild Friends is also home to many species of adoptable animals in search of loving homes. Specifically, those that are equipped to care for species such as ducks, chickens, reptiles, and small mammals.
