Injured bald eagle found near local wildlife refuge

SANIBEL, Fla. – An injured bald eagle was found on the ground in the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge earlier this week.

Two wildlife rehabbers with the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) found the eagle soaking wet with bloody feet. The eagle was netted and taken back to CROW.

Veterinarians found many abrasions on the eagle’s body, wings, and feet, including a very deep cut to one of its toes on its right foot. Wildlife officials said despite the injury, it still has good use of the foot.

The eagle was given pain medication and the toe laceration was cleaned and bandaged, CROW said. The team will also do a full set of radiographs and determine a plan for antibiotics based on the eagle’s bloodwork.

The three other eagles still in CROW’s care are continuing to do well, according to the wildlife hospital. Both of the nestling eagles’ fractures have stabilized and they have been reunited in an outdoor enclosure.

The adult eagle with the puncture wound has been moved outside as well. CROW officials said its wound still requires bandaging, but new tissue is forming to heal and fill the wound.
