From our friends at MARS comes the video story of Houdini the bald eagle. ~~
For over three months MARS had been getting calls from people in Campbell River, concerned about a Bald Eagle hanging around a beach area and sitting very low in trees close to the road. The bird did not seem to care about the many people stopping to take photos. With a slightly drooping wing, she was still able to fly well enough to elude capture and several times a team from MARS would race down only to find she had vanished! So, she earned the name 'Houdini'. Finally on October 28th she was able to be caught. After an exam at Sunrise Veterinary Clinic, she was found to have an elbow infection and is on antibiotics for three weeks. She is strong and feisty and eating very well. We are hopeful for a full recovery. To be continued.....
