After Black Bear yearling #17-0093 was moved to the Center's Bear Pen, the rehabilitation staff noted that the bear was eating well. When rehabilitator Linda checked on the bear on Monday, February 20, she noted that the bear had not eaten.
On February 11, an adult male Bald Eagle was found down in Greene County. An animal control officer was able to capture the bird, and a volunteer transporter drove the eagle to the Wildlife Center for treatment.
Within the past month, the Wildlife Center received clearance to place non-releasable Bald Eagle #16-0355 at an educational facility. Wild Spirit Education, Inc., located in New York, expressed an interest in working with this Bald Eagle.
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.
