One of two bald eagles at Richmond's nature park has died.

Maymont officials say Liberty, the female eagle in the city park's native Virginia wildlife collection, was pronounced dead this week. Her exact age wasn't known, but she had been at Maymont since August 2008.

The cause of death hasn't been determined but the eagle had a foot infection in the fall and had an irregular heartbeat.

The Wildlife Center of Virginia cared for Liberty after she was found in 2007 with a broken wing in a King and Queen County landfill.
