Bald Eagle Released South of Mandan

Posted:

After two months of recovering a bald eagle is released back into its habitat south of Mandan.

This eagle was found in August south of Bismarck.

The bird was unable to fly at the time it was recovered by Dakota Zoo.

Zoo Director Terry Lincoln says they x-rayed the bird and found no major injuries however the bird did have some bruising on the wings.

<<"It was actually found in a ditch and so we're not sure if it got tagged by car maybe hit a windshield or just what happened to it, but essentially we put it in a flying pin, worked with it everyday twice a day making sure that it flew to exercise it's wings," Dakota Zoo Director Terry Lincoln said.>>

Lincoln says there is an eagle nest near where the bird was released today at Fort Lincoln State Park.

He says he believes the bird will return to that nest.
