The bald eagle that Good Samaritans came to the rescue of on Route 9 in Berlin about a week and a half ago has been released into the wild.
Merle Mckenzie said he was driving on Route 9 north in Berlin on the afternoon of Thursday, April 5 when he spotted a bald eagle that had been hit by a car.
A woman who stopped helped Mckenzie and they wrapped the bird in a towel, put it in a cage and took it to the Kensington Bird and Animal Hospital.
An examination revealed the eagle had no broken bones, just a scratch on the eye, and Kensington Bird and Animal Hospital and Horizon Wings treated the eagle, known as “Grace.”
After around a week of treatment, “Grace” has been released back into the wild.
