Happy Holiday Release

Wildlife rescuers Bobby & Cathy had another happy holiday release this week.

I just received the following from Bobby Horvath:

Subject: Eagle Release
Date: December 13, 2009

Here are some pics of the male juvenile Bald Eagle we released last week. He completely recovered from pox and, except from the 2 self inflicted scrapes (only superficial), was in great condition. He took right off over the treeline, circled around for a last look and was out of sight in no time. We wish they all turned out so well. Cathy deserves all the credit with this one, from medicating to hand feeding small cut up meals numerous times a day when he first came in almost starved. He got the all "TLC" he needed until he didn't need us anymore.
