Bald eagle rescued in Ann Arbor after being caught on a fishing line
A bald eagle was rescued in Ann Arbor after being found entangled in a fishing line.
The wire was wrapped around his wing and tied him to a tree trunk in which he was trapped.
The Humane Society of Huron Valley carried out the rescue and carried out an initial audit. They found no major injuries.
The eagle was taken to the Howell Nature Center for further care and rehabilitation.
An HNC vet performed another physical exam to make sure the eagle hadn’t sustained any major injuries.
After resting for a while, it is inserted into the outdoor flying pen to test its ability to fly.
Once he successfully completes all of his flight tests, he will be brought back to Ann Arbor and released back into the wild to return to his family.
This bald eagle is relatively famous according to a Facebook post by the HNC. He and his family are sitting at a popular nest camera.
His fans noticed he was missing and were very concerned. He was timely and rescued before permanent injuries could be caused.
