At Badger Run Wildlife Rehab (BRWR) in Klamath Falls, Oregon, the eagle was given an examination and it was discovered that something was wrong with her wing: She had tissue damage to one shoulder, which will require physical therapy. She was prescribed a lot of rest and relaxation, as well as some medication to help her get stronger.
"She is doing well, eating voraciously," Liz Burton, animal care coordinator for BRWR, told The Dodo. "She has extensive soft tissue damage and that takes a lot of time to heal." Because of this, it's uncertain whether she'll be strong enough to return to the wild. "We won't know for several weeks, possibly months."
If the eagle remains too injured to return safely to the wild, she may be adopted by a native tribe for an eagle aviary or she will stay at BRWR, joining the center's three other wildlife ambassador eagles.
