Update on Feb. 13 More good news as Hatteras Wildlife Rehabilitation announced on the night of Feb. 12 that the eagle is now on the way to the Cape Fear Raptor Center.
Two days ago, Lou Browning of Hatteras Island Wildlife Rehabilitation reported on a very sick bald eagle he was caring for that had been rescued over the weekend in Camden County. He cautioned that it had very little chance of survival.
Last night, Browning posted this encouraging update, noting that the bird had been suffering from a number of physical problems including dehydration and a mild case of lead poisoning.
As for the prognosis: “Better by the hour!” he said. “After this bird starts eating on its own, more treatment will begin. The plan is to transfer him to Cape Fear Raptor Center for further treatment and diagnostics.”
