ANTIGO (WAOW) - A bald eagle shot in the wing in Marathon County is now healing in Antigo.


Wildlife officials say the eagle lost something important but is also gaining something in the process.


About three weeks ago Marge Gibson of the Raptor Education Group in Antigo got a call about an injured bald eagle.


"People found her in a field in Stratford and the bird was very quiet and stayed in a certain area," said Marge Gibson, Executive Director of the Raptor Education Group.


Gibson says the female eagle was shot in the wing while flying. She fell a long way suffering serious injuries.

 "Look at that face isn't that amazing," said Gibson.
