Bald Eagle #17-1454 update

On June 22, Drs. Ernesto and Peach took Bald Eagle #17-1454 to surgery again to attempt to repair the bird’s fractured humerus. Unfortunately, during surgery, Dr. Ernesto noted that the bone was flexible and weak; as the bone was held to attempt repair, it shattered into several small pieces. Given the grave prognosis, the team decided to humanely euthanize the eagle.
