Golden Eagle released

A Golden Eagle was released back into the wild after a couple weeks of rehabilitation in the Second Chance Wildlife Rehibilator program, under the direction of Debbie Pappas. Second Chance Wildlife volunteers, and Connie Waddell, sub-permittee main volunteer, were in the main care givers of the injured eagle.

Frank Markosek, one of two E.M.S.H.E.A. rescuers that was involved in the Crandal Canyon mine disaster in 2008, was given the honors of releasing the magnificent bird 11 miles up Consumers near the place the bird was originally injured. The eagle is a three to four year old Golden Eagle that received trauma to a foot and one eye after being hit by a car while it was feeding on a dead dear by the pump house. This eagle suffered trauma on the left side of its body, but did not have broken bones so it didn't take as much time to rehab the eagle.

"We asked Frank to do this release for us because he is one of our true heros," said Pappas. "It was a great release. The eagle wanted out. We are hoping he will find his sweetie, and will have many good years of making babies."
