Today, on a visit to the regional wildlife authorities, we found them with a newly rescued black and white eagle (Spizaetus melanoleucus) that they needed our help with. This specimen was trapped in a cage meant for a much smaller bird, and had been forced through a door that it was too large to pass back out of, meaning we had to cut the bars of the cage in order to be able to free it. Once this was done we rushed the bird to our vet who found and set in plaster a broken left ankle. The animal is now in a much larger cage with space to perch. It will be sent to a rescue centre tomorrow morning where it will rest and recuperate. In one month we will return to remove the plaster from its broken leg and hopefully this magnificent eagle will be able to fly and hunt again.
