ABC-7 (KGO-TV in San Francisco) recently aired a fantastic update on the injured and orphaned animals that LTWC rehabbed and released this past winter, including the bear cubs, bald eagle and Chips the Bobcat. Check out the video below!
This bald eagle has been in rehab at LTWC since December 2012 with an injured right wing. Two days ago, it got its first taste of flying again at Lake Tahoe Golf Course after four months of healing. It flew five times and did fantastic!
The eagle is now on an exercise program, and has a potential release date of April 14. Stay tuned!
