Injured Bald Eagle Rescued After It Gets Stuck in Creek
Officials said the eagle sustained a serious injury but is now safe.
Maryland authorities rushed to free a bald eagle stuck in a creek Saturday.
When authorities came in with a net, the eagle tried to get away and paddled downstream but eventually was taken by the current before it found a place to rest.
As the eagle tried to catch its breath, authorities made their move. It was a team effort, with one person trying to use a net and another coming in with a cloth to wrap it up.
They were successful in getting the eagle out of the creek before the river took it away.
Officials said the eagle sustained a serious injury, but it is now safe in the hands of rescuers.
Bald eagles were once an endangered species; however, thanks to regulations put in place by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the bird has been on the rebound since 2007.
