Bald eagle shot, says veterinarians

Bald eagle rescued 2The latest news on the 2-year old female bald eagle that was rescued from a landfill in Rhode Island isn’t great. A Facebook posting says veterinarians found what appears to be three buckshot pellets in its chest, leg and tail area.

Information has been passed on to state and federal authorities so that a criminal investigation can be conducted. Let’s hope that all goes well and that she recovers fully.
