The eagle has landed


While many would argue that humankind has a net negative impact on the nature around us, this doesn’t mean that many kind souls aren’t concerned with the many creatures in our world, and do their part to heal and sustain lesser animals.

Many people were responsible when it came to healing and releasing a golden eagle that was found on Boxing Day (Dec. 26) by a family in Benito, and eventually returned to its habitat in the Duck Mountains.

The adult male bird was discovered unmoving on the ground, and arrangements were made for Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre (WHRC) in Ile-des-Chenes to examine it.

“Golden eagles are rare to come into our centre,” said WHRC Coordinator Anne Wowchuk. “The one released was the only golden eagle in 2016 and 2017.”
