The bald eagle was surprisingly heavy as the vet lifted him out of the box.

The vet had to put the large eagle in a position to keep them safe and the eagle comfortable so he could be examined for further injuries.

They did confirm that it was a broken wing. The bone punctured the skin which had caused bleeding.

Once the vet had finished doing her job, she then called the wildlife rehab center where they will provide treatment until the bald eagle is able to be released back in the wild again. The cost of freedom!
