Perfect for The 4th, Three Rehabbed MN Bald Eagles Released Back into Wild [PICS]
GLEN TOWNSHIP -- Three bald eagles rescued and rehabilitated in Aitkin County were released back into the wild this week.
In June, two adult eagles were found on the ground injured and unable to fly near Clear Lake in Glen Township. DNR Conservation Officer Lt. Robert Gorecki captured and brought them to Garrison Animal Hospital for treatment.
Another eagle, too young to fly was also located in a nest nearby. The DNR enlisted the help of a local tree service to climb 55 feet to rescue the bird and bring it to the animal hospital with the others.
After about two weeks of rehabilitation, the eagles were ready to return home and released near where they were found.
