Bainbridge wildlife shelter releases battle-scarred eagle

A bald eagle was released back into the wild on Saturday after a three-month stay at West Sound Wildlife Shelter.

“She’s ready to go all right,” the shelter’s director of wildlife services told environmental reporter Chris Dunagan. “She has never adapted to being in captivity.”

The eagle came to the shelter after it suffered puncture on its head and mouth, probably due to a fight with another eagle.
