PHOENIX: Anniversary Update of His Story of Tragedy and Triumph

This story began May 2012 when Kent Keller, a certified eagle bander, was scouting a golden eagle nest near Eagle Mountain Utah for banding opportunities. Climbing down from the ridge above, he found a healthy single eaglet too small to band. Returning again on June 1st, Kent banded the growing eaglet and took what he expected to be his last photos as he left the site.

Three weeks later on June 21st two men shooting explosive targets started a small blaze that erupted into a wildfire burning more than 5,000 acres--the “Dump Fire.” Tragically, the young eaglet’s home was in the path of this fiery monster and was completely consumed … Kent said, “not a stick remained.”
