Bald Eagle #17-1019 update

On June 8, Dr. Ernesto examined Bald Eagle #17-1019 and was able to remove the scab on the bird’s injured wing. Sadly, Dr. Ernesto found that the muscle and bone underneath the large scab was necrotic, due to the severity of the initial gunshot wound. Dr. Ernesto made the difficult decision to humanely euthanize the eagle.
