Sick and Near Starved Eagle

A very thin Golden Eagle arrived to our rehab facility

This Golden Eagle arrived at early evening. After a thorough check over, Martin found no phyical problems so moved him to a chamber and prepared a meal for him.

The eagle struggled to swallow the meal and was very weak in Martin arms. There was not much improvement during the second feeding at 3am.

Come morning, the eagle showed clear signs of recovery, moving around the chamber. Martin cut up a rabbit carcass for him and left him to feed himself.

This eagle recovered fully and was released by a teacher during one of Martin’s school wildlife education programs at the Parowan Gap.
