Young bald eagle released after injury recovery

 NORTH THETFORD, Vt. (AP) — An immature bald eagle is back in the wild after being nursed back to help by a Vermont organization that cares for injured birds.

The bald eagle was released in North Thetford on Tuesday, almost three weeks after a Vermont game warden found the bird after it had apparently been hit by a car in Danby. It had been feeding on a deer carcass.

The eagle, estimated to be between 18 months and 2 years old, was taken to the Vermont Institute of Natural Science in Quechee, where the organization's staff rehabilitated it.

VINS Wildlife Service Manager Sara Eisenhauer tells the Valley News ( ) it was only the second bald eagle she's helped rehabilitate in her seven years with the organization.

VINS helps rehabilitate about 400 birds a year.
