Bald Eagle #16-2504 has been flying well during the past two weeks. On Thursday, January 12, the veterinary team drew blood from the eagle for a pre-release analysis. Results were within normal limits and the eagle was cleared for release.
Black Bears #16-2564 and #17-0009 -- the two most recent bears admitted -- are both doing well in the Center's Bear Pen, where they are housed together.
Patient 17-0001A is doing well this week. His caregiver notes that he is increasingly BAR (bright, alert, and reactive).
The goal of the Center is “to treat to release” – to restore patients to health and return as many as possible to the wild. In rare instances, the Center has the opportunity to track eagles after their release. Click here to follow these former eagle patients.
