Patient Profiles

Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Shot Bald Eagle

By Sarvey Wildlife / Monday, January 17, 2022 /

We had a call about this eagle on the ground in Stanwood. One of our rehabilitators went to assess the situation for rescue. We thought he was injured from territorial fighting (common this time of year) but radiographs confirmed he had been shot. We are treating him for a fractured wing and other injuries and trauma. His prognosis is guarded, but we are doing all we can for him.

Shooting eagles (and most other federally protected migratory birds) is illegal. Sadly, we frequently get a variety of species that have been senselessly shot. We appreciate all the wonderful support we are seeing in honor of Betty white today. Those funds make it possible for us to help patients like this one. 

Status: euthanized. After he was stable enough to undergo anesthesia for a more thorough exam, we discovered that he was also suffering a fracture to the pelvis and the wing fracture was complicated and involved damage to the joint.
