Eagle Ate Too Much to Fly

Martin and Susan were called out to the highway to rescue a Golden Eagle that was having trouble flying. After capturing the bird, Martin saw her crop was stuffed full. Since she was otherwise healthy, his first diagnosis was that she simply ate so much she could not get over a fence along the side of the highway.

After a night at the Rehab center, and much reduced crop size, she was released back the wild.
