Sharon Thomas couldn't believe what she saw when she took a walk on her Lewis County property near Winlock last Friday.
“I got the binoculars, was unable to tell what it was,’ she said. She found one of what turned out to be seven beautiful bald eagles - all near death. “We didn't realize what the culprit was -- why they were so sick,” she said. “It was heart wrenching, wanting them to open their eyes and stay breathing so we could get them to the people who could help us.”
