FREMONT -- A female Bald Eagle perched next to its nest Wednesday morning, anxiously awaiting the return of its mate following a one-month stay at Back to the Wild rehabilition center in Castalia.

 

The male Bald Eagle who suffered injuries to its wing and a puncture wound to its leg, believed to be the result of a fight with another bird, was found a quarter mile from its nest. The bird fully recovered with the assistance of Mona Rutger, a licensed wildlife rehabilitator and owner of Back to the Wild, as well as Marianne Socha, a veterinarian at Firelands Animal Hospital in Huron.

"It's very difficult to rehabilitate and return a Bald Eagle back to the wild," Rutger said.

A bald eagle that was rehabilitated at Back To The Wild takes to flight following its release on Wednesday.
