A bald eagle that had been rescued and rehabilitated after experiencing lead poisoning was released back to the wild at a Pennsylvania state park on May 21.
The sick eagle was found by a trail runner about three months ago at Prince Gallitzin State Park in Patton, Pennsylvania, park officials said.
Park staff and members of the Pennsylvania Game Commission were able to capture and transport the eagle to receive proper treatment at Centre Wildlife Care.
This video shared by the park shows the moment the eagle was released after its recovery. Park officials said the bird just had to “find her bearings” and eventually flew away. Credit: Prince Gallitzin State Park via Storyful
