The bald eagle Roxbury's animal control officer saved about a month ago has died.
Sue Blanchard rescued the bird from dying in the woods after a fight with another bald eagle April 9. But it was found dead in her aviary, or large enclosure, Friday afternoon at Raptor Trust in Millington, according to the nonprofit's education director Lauren Butcher.
The bird most likely died from kidney failure due to an infection caused by injuries from the fight, Butcher said.
