Massachusetts Environmental Police and MassWildlife rescue and rehabilitate bald eagle

image_pdfimage_print

Approximately three weeks ago, a juvenile Bald Eagle was reportedly found injured in a backyard. Officers from the Massachusetts Environmental Police, along with personnel from MassWildlife, captured the bird without incident and transported it to Tuft’s Veterinary Medical Center in Grafton for further evaluation.

It was determined the Eagle’s flight feathers were not properly developed. After a short rehabilitation period, the Bald Eagle was released in the same general area where it was found – taking flight unassisted and continuing to fly on its own.

MEP would like to thank the individuals who reported the injured animal, Tuft’s for their rehabilitation efforts, and Massachusetts Division of Fisheries & Wildlife for their assistance in the capture and release of the Bald Eagle.
