It’s extremely rare to see an American bald eagle from a distance. It’s even more unusual to have one right in your very own arms. But that is exactly what occurred when a bald eagle, after having barely survived a terrible accident, was left in the caring hands of these amazing veterinarians.
#1. Arriving in a cold, cardboard box, the bald eagle was covered in blood, from beak to talons.
#2. Usually full of fight and fire, the majestic bird calmly held on for dear life.
#3. It’s incredible how sharp and huge his talons were.
#4. The vets decided to name the eagle Freedom and worked diligently to heal him.
#5. Vets discovered Freedom had an open fracture – where bone broke through his skin – and did their best to sedate and then repair his beautiful wing.
#6. After weeks of stabilization, Freedom’s wing was healed.
#7. He is now being given his final treatments and will be released back into the wild to rule the skies once again.
