Fly like an eagle!

Fly like an eagle!

A female sub-adult bald eagle was rehabilitated and released by Wild ARC near Sooke River.

  • Dec. 17, 2014 2:00 p.m.

This beautiful female sub-adult bald eagle was found tangled in the bushes near Sooke River Road a month ago.  It was most likely hit by a car and appeared to have no obvious fractures, but its wings were drooping.  It was picked up by WIld ARC and assisted by the local RCMP.  After an X-ray it was discovered it had a fractured clavicle.  After a month in rehabilitation, the clavicle was aligned and healed well. She was featured on the “Critter Cam” on Wild ARC’s website at SPCA.bc.ca.  While no wild animals are given names, she was given a number: 2402, the record number of wild animals received at the centre this year.  She was released by Vanessa Williams of Wild ARC and quickly flew away and landed in a nearby tree temporarily until she made her way further up the Sooke River.
