Bald eagle recovering after being rescued by Missouri lawmaker

BONNE TERRE, Mo. (AP) – A bald eagle is on the mend after being rescued by a Missouri state lawmaker.

The Daily Journal newspaper in Park Hills, Missouri reports that Rep. Linda Black, a Republican from Bonne Terre, was checking on cattle Tuesday when she spotted the injured eagle near the edge of a field. The eagle was flapping his wings but couldn’t fly.

She contacted Tyler Harding of the Missouri Department of Conservation. Harding, Black and a third person surrounded the adult male eagle and used a blanket to move him into a crate.

The eagle was taken to a rehabilitation expert in Bollinger County.

The cause and extent of the injury wasn’t clear, but Harding says there are no broken bones and the eagle should recover.
